Through the technological residue of materiality my thoughts turn to an in-between state. Whether it is photo-chemistry or electronic data; this work investigates the tension between realism and fantasy, between representation, indexicality and abstraction.
Drawing on the qualities of light and shade my work is assembled through a combination of light projection, photography darkroom printing, traditional printmaking and image manipulation. Working with low-resolution files in 3D software, the work produced is rooted in a curiosity with what William Henry Fox Talbot affirmed in 1839 as the art of photography, to fix a shadow.
These playful exercises in shadow capture lead to evocations of something of an illusory place.
