I was until recently a Canberra based photographic artist. I am currently studying my Diploma of Photography and Diploma of Visual Arts at the Canberra Institute of Technology.
My passion is combining technical skills with elements of the human body , architecture and abstraction.
Alchemy: a power or process that changes or transforms something in a mysterious way, both physically and spiritually.
The "My Alchemy" series of images represents the journey of transforming a simple life drawing into something mysterious. The original drawings are in charcoal and the energy is captured in the simple mark making giving a feeling of purity and air flowing around and through the lines. As the images change so does the need for the audience to become more intimate with the detail, fluidity, structure and tone and intense colour.
The images have been made in the darkroom using contact negatives of charcoal drawings. In some cases these have been overlaid to produce alien like creatures. The set also includes some of the original drawings in the negative. Once I get settled I will spend more time in the darkroom. So stay tuned.
