Art Exhibition Invitation for 2011

Artist Statement
After a 18 month photography blitz taking photographs of weather.This work ‘On a clear day I can see god’, presents what is left, the sun rise and sunset a form of ‘energy’ and optical illusion. Light and colour are energy, colour is derived from light. Sunlight, which contains all the wavelengths, consisting of the entire electromagnetic spectrum that we depend on, to exist on this planet.

I came about these ideas by continually reducing my images down to emotions. I would, go out and respond, instinctively and emotionally, purposefully blurring and distorting images, to create movement, space, light and emotion. I committed myself to take photographs that needed no distorting. Which developed into searching for natural weather phenomenons, that had similar aesthetic and conceptual values that I was striving for. Speculation, clarity and resolution. God is used as a metaphor in this work. A popular term for a form of reflection and connection to something, that may differ from object reality. Whether in ourselves, deity or the natural world.
