My work is all about layers. Photographs layered on wood panel, followed by a combination of textures and media ranging from dry wall and fabrics to silver and gold leafing. The final layer usually involves painting with encaustic.
This layering process is central to my work as it adds depth and punctuates the dream-like quality that characterises my images.
Invoking a sense of mystery and isolation in a serene, contemplative sense is more a priority for me than the subject matter itself. Moody nostalgia is my ultimate goal.
The inspiration for my images largely comes from my travels, which impose constant shifts in reality as I cross borders, cultures and landscapes, both literal and figurative.
