Social Networking Sites

So although I consider myself a technophobe, I have finally jumped on the social networking site bandwagon...Which to be honest is probably just as well given the fact there is now an entire art world existing purely on the internet! Where have I been?! I can not believe how much goes on on the web - … Continue reading Social Networking Sites

The Potential for Movement

'The Potential for Movement', Photograph, 2016 Thinking back to my images taken in the photographic studio the other week, this one in particular stood out to me. It has what I'm calling 'the potential for movement'. There is so much kinetic energy present here, yet simultaneously none at all. It is completely still; the subject is completely … Continue reading The Potential for Movement

So photocopying them from my notebook and creating digital copies was quite a sterile process for me, as it almost diluted … Continue reading Doodle Galaxy (Doodle Time Part 2)

Doodle Time Part 1

So I think it's safe to say I have a slight tendency to doodle. I do it very unconsciously; it just kind of happens and before I know it half the pages in my notebook are filled up with drawings. I have this really annoying habit of doodling in random pages towards the back of my … Continue reading Doodle Time Part 1

In Time

It's always funny looking back at old artwork. This is because I look at it with all of the feelings and emotions I was applying at the time of its creation, yet I'm also looking at it with my more current artistic views. So there ends up being this two-way reading of a work. What I felt then and what I feel now. … Continue reading In Time
