Life behind the Reflection
I am fascinated by water and its mysteries; it can absorb, purify and its fluidity allows it to adapt to any environment. Formative years of my childhood were spent in Holland and perhaps I absorbed the tenuous national relationship with the medium. In my work, I have been drawn to water; to rivers and estuaries where landscape and seascape merge and become undefined. They appear and vanish in tidal ranges, it shapes, filters and transports. In my work I have endeavoured to explore these processes. My use of photo etching enriches the photographic view; its process involves a kind of alchemy where the view emerges gradually and gently. This perhaps echoes some of the qualities of this most precious element.
