I shoot photographs from underneath the water to show scenes that small underwater animals may observe. I wish to show life from a different perspective, below the surface, and how the forms, colour, depth and movement, may transmit feelings and emotions. My intention is to draw in and intrigue the audience to see more closely the environment underwater.
Transferring these findings to an installation piece, ‘Surface Shadows’, consisting of shadows projected onto a wall, I venture to produce feelings and emotions of serenity and tranquility so the viewer can feel in harmony with the natural world.
In 'Surface Shadows', 'Looking up' and 'Dancing Molecules' I aspire to convey the beauty of nature so that the viewer can feel in harmony with the natural world. In contrast, 'Energy Ripples' suggests the tensions and potential risks to the environment, emphasizing the importance of our role in caring for our world, and hopefully for just a moment to relax and relieve the tension we encounter daily.
