500 METRES ( 2016)

These meditative studies of colour, light and texture were taken within a 500metres stretch of The Basingstoke Canal and allow you to look into the details in a way that you almost forget what you are looking at. They create an illusion that occurs when the abstract rendered image transports the viewer and the literal subject itself is lost.
Since living on the canal my work is driven by the theme of water, capturing the changing qualities of natural light in my immediate surroundings. Focusing on details, shapes, surfaces and texture, there is no horizon to orient the viewer. The elements-water and sky, merge without perspective and intertwine into a rhythm of colour.
Freezing the motion of water or framing a small part of it, the image becomes an abstraction, something that exists only for the briefest of moment and is unrepeatable.
