Strength and Fragility. This duality is what my subject matter explores. My presentation is in line with traditional photography. However degrees of ambiguity remain. Ambiguity in the choice of subject: flowers fragile by nature but whose strength of form creates the impression of a strong sensuality. Ambiguity in size: exaggerating delicate natural forms allows the spectator the opportunity to be confronted and submerged by the objects. Ambiguity in presentation: blurring the lines between painting and photography I hope to take the viewer away from the constant digital noise in our environment to a serene and meditative space.
