Documentaion of works: Section 1 proposal, section 2 theoretical submissions, section 3 documentation of works, section 4 work processes.
My work anchors itself in the specificity of the
photographic record. Although it is an accepted fact that
photographs lie, at the same time it can be argued that they
do contain an element of truth - a knowledge that at some
time an event occurred and was recorded. It is this
inherent photographic quality, this dichotomy between
representation and construction, reality and imagination
that I intend to investigate and use to pose questions about
our own notions of reality, of the world we exist in and of
who or what we are.
To date all my concerns have involved a progression towards
this point. My first major piece (Queenstown), deliberately
mis-used time and place. The latest work (Untitled 1983),
used an almost filmic technique - a series of frozen
photographic moments to allow the viewer space to enter.
This desire to manipulate the photographic moment along with
the concerns of alienation and vulnerability, of barriers
and the need to break them, form the basis for my current
My recent work comes from both observed experience and from
a strong personal feeling of self investigation, growth and
struggle. The work is intended to explore the state of flux
in human existence - to reveal both the outer precariousness
and vulnerability and the inner conflicting desires and
fears that form and shape a personality. Munch has been a
source here in the way that, for me, his figures seem about
to shatter and dissolve into a landscape which itself seems
ready to dissolve.
