Affinity. Closeness. Longing for connection. These shared experiences are what elevate our lives beyond mere existence. Good or bad, they are the muse for poetry, the rhythm of music, and the ‘heart’ in our heart. This body of work is about exploring just that: our humanity seen through how we connect with something outside ourselves. That moment when we bare our souls and open our hearts.

Back to the Basics

I think I mentioned in an earlier post that I'm doing a Masters in Art at COFA. I'm really enjoying the art history and the research into contemporary art practices. I am finding that art is like philosophy. It's there to ask a question, get the viewer thinking. It is not necessarily about creating a beautiful piece to hang on your wall. With my personal work I am finding that I want to jump in and execute an idea. What's interesting for me is trying to come from a more conceptual space to start with, and then think outside the box more and create work that is less obvious or literal, more thought provoking! Not too easy when you have in your mind to start with what you want to shoot!! We'll see where it takes me.

So in saying that here are some pretty pictures ;-) I would love to know what they evoke in you!
