Most of the time we are great together
My work explores the relationship between photographer and subject. ‘Most of the time we are great together’ 2019 comprised eight works I created during an endeavour to reinvent the frame as a supportive structure. I identified the pre-described square frame as a convention that could be improved to create a vessel that nurtures the image and built these objects to apply the therapeutic concept of ‘holding’ to my photographs. Some of them reference my body directly, taking their shape from my arms and hands, while others are more abstract. The stretching of the fabric images mirrors the complexity of relationships and the possibility for nurture and care to be present at the same time as tension.
