“The ever changing light, the dramatic skies
and endless horizons in these pictures
are intended to take the viewer on a journey
beyond the literal image.” TIM HALL
I have lately found myself searching for space, a desire to be surrounded by the natural world and an ever-growing need to simplify life. As my urban life envelops me, I feel I have become more than ever disconnected from nature. In picturing the natural world in an abstract way I am hoping to encourage the viewer to go beyond the literal image, to reflect upon their place in the universe and to be aware of the creative force of the earth. In our busy lives there is little or no time for this - these pictures aim to act as a kind of meditation. Now more than ever, nature is increasingly reminding us of its presence and power. I am interested in interpreting this through my photographs: to blur the lines between photography and painting. These images look back to a romantic world and to an uncertain future, where the force of nature is both powerful and beautiful, to be admired and respected.
