The Orpheus building wall piece has continued to grow over the last few weeks. I have employed the same rational, measured and almost ritualistic process of tracing and transferring marks in it’s creation.

Marks congregate around my eye level, the natural and most comfortable place to work. In this way I leave a trace of the mass of my own self on the space.

Several sections occur where where marks are most layered and concentrated.

A photograph of one wall inverted. I think it resembles a constellation.

I could continue this approach until the end of the academic year, but I want to interrupt it and set new rules.

I’ve been continue to play with making images on Photoshop, using elements cut from old photographs and diagrams. I often invert and tint the colours. I am drawn to the mysterious and ghostly atmosphere in many of these old images. Stains and blemishes are welcome. It’s a pleasure to add a fortress to a lakeside, make an inverted head float in mid air or fuse two disparate landscapes.

As always please zoom to explore details.

Composite

A recent experimental piece using found photographs manipulated in Photoshop. I am fascinated by early photography and old anatomical diagrams. I am slowly learning how to use the program.
