About the Book
On the run? My work begins with found images taken from the world around me – images of surfaces, textures, colours, sometime much as I found them but often “taken for a walk”, to borrow a phrase. I use what we most often have to hand, a mobile phone. I take delight in exploring how far I can transform an image to create something part reality and part invention - a different way of seeing.
digital art on the run… My work begins with surfaces discovered in the world around me “on the run”. In capturing images, I use whatever I have to hand, which is usually a smart phone. My interest is in colour, light and texture. My images of surfaces may stay more or less as they are found. Others, to bend a phrase from Paul Klee, I take for a long walk. My eye is drawn to the abstract, and I take delight in exploring how far I can transform an image to create a different way of seeing. Although I strive for is an abstract, I like to work from real world images. In this way, my images retain an organic “memory” of the real world which provides a hook for the viewer. Some of my work is very physical in construction, consisting of multiple, collaged or float mounted images, so perhaps not digital at all. I am exploring the the possibilities of mixed media and print making techniques to add further depth to my work.
