Fragments 2011

During this period I was particularly drawn to the translucent qualities of surfaces……the outer shell hiding or revealing the underlying layers in varying degrees. While my original source of imagery comes from my own underwater photographs of translucent marine life, the working of these images involves the fragmentation and the rebuilding of surfaces and layers. The underlying layers, not always easy to see, can be more beautiful than the surface, with a brilliance or a darkness, like the complex layers of human characteristics .
