A series of work based on the female form
Published:
My work makesenquiries about the human condition. Themes of memory, gender and identity areexplored through the process of painting, printmaking and photography.

My latest work bridges a gapbetween traditional printmaking and lens-based media. My love of history hasled me to experiment with traditional photographic processes, in particularCyanotype also known as blueprint. With this photochemical process, I haveincorporated both modern day and Victorian technologies.

I utilise acetate film to make digitaltransparencies and a formula of light sensitive solution that was firstintroduced by John Herschel in 1842. The paper is exposed to ultraviolet lightand a chemical reaction generates an insoluble Prussian blue.

Abstract forms are deliberately ambiguouswith distortions andimperfections allowing for a more complex reading of the body.
