My interests are about the unreal world of fantasy, the romance of
the past, the feminine viewpoint and the depiction of an environment
made personal by the use of objects which hold a personal association
for me.
Although my interests might change during the programme or expand or
intensify in a specific way, the starting point for work will be those
areas of interest outlined above.
My main method of working is in series form. Each image has.? relationship
to the others and is strengthened and intensified by this relationship.
By using series I can create a story line which can be read,
one image leading onto the next in a narrative/visual way or by a group
of images creating a total image with cross-references. Some images
have only hints of what is going on which encourages the viewer to
interpret the works themselves.
I plan to use infa-red images because of their particular qualities
which are suited to the works I am dealing with. The images process a
slight distortion tonally and spatially and are enhanced by the
graininess, softness and lack of contrast in the film. Having spent the past two years working fairly consistently I found I
have worked along different paths than those originally intended. After
a period of settling back into an institution and the course, and of gaining
confidence in myself and my work, my interests changed. My dissatisfaction
with the mechanical and precious nature of photography led to the use of
a simpler camera, a greater manipulation of images and the introduction
of materials other than mount board and frame for presentation. The most
important area of experimentation was that of a more 3 dimensional use
of the medium and presentation. All of these changes lead to a larger
scale of working. These particular changes are documented later in more
