'LIFE, TWICE REMOVED | ALL IN THIS TOGETHER'

Layered digital photograph. Printed on Fuji Crystal Archive matte archival photographic paper, mounted on aluminium panel.  
Also available as an unmounted photographic print in an edition of 75. 

'All in This Together' is part of a larger body of work ('Life, Twice Removed'), in large part a response to lockdown and our "new normal" world. This particular work is the fruit of an observational afternoon spent on the seafront at Torquay, on August Bank Holiday, 2020. The title is open to interpretation,  encouraging the viewer to reflect on what this image really shows - and what that means in terms of a pandemic society.

I layer photographs of my original oil and pastel works on paper with layers of photographic moments, in a process that is equal parts serendipity and judgement; it is very deliberately a far cry from a slick, Photoshop aesthetic. For me, this is a way to fuse traditional and digital media, in an alchemical process, to create something greater than the sum of its parts. I think of these works as palimpsests - layer upon layer, fusing time, place and memory, constantly overwritten, partially obliterated and written again.

The experience of 2020 gave new and greater levels of significance and meaning to these central ideas of transience, place-memory and the ways in which we are now seeing and experiencing the world.

'LIFE, TWICE REMOVED | UNPOPULATED

Layered digital photograph. Printed on Fuji Crystal Archive glossy archival photographic paper, mounted on aluminium panel.  
Also available as a 50cm x 50cm unmounted photographic print in an edition of 75. 

'Unpopulated' is part of a larger body of work ('Life, Twice Removed'), in large part a response to lockdown and our "new normal" world. The title refers to the absence of any figurative element in the landscape - a thought which takes on greater significance in a lockdown environment.
