It’s A Matter of Trust

We shouldn’t be taught that life is perfect.

Lost

For the majority of us, a satisfied life consists of constant deadlines, constraints, rules, boundaries and a general acceptance that life sometimes isn’t fair.

Reality is that life consists of rules and boundaries

Life doesn’t turn out how you expected it to?

Discomfort Part Two

The second part of a series of works I am experimenting with, placing my belongings from a time when I felt secure, in places where I felt most uncomfortable.

Do experiences from childhood have a profound effect on us later in life?

The City

I was born in a city and moved to a rural area many miles away. The one thing I still miss after all this time is the buzz you get from a city centre.

I visited Chelmsford on two occasions and photographed people going about their business shopping, walking to work, queuing or tending to children. There were people chatting and socialising from all generations. I realised that what brings a city to life is the people and this is what I wanted to show in my series of work. I visited the site of the gallery and decided it allowed for art with some detail, as it will be seen by people walking along the path next to it, it is not really visible from the road.

Living in the City of Chelmsford means being close to the action, a place small enough however to maintain community spirit and corners of tranquility.

My series of five artworks were created by using photos taken within few minutes of each other blended to show moments of life in the city highlighting the harmony and tranquility within this thriving community.

I Left Here…My Childhood Bedroom

I Left Here….Building Memories

Room

I began with a bunch of memories, as I build my memories into a room, these memories are creating more memories.  I now feel this is destined to remain forever unfinished.
