By documenting my immediate world I am creating visual metaphors for common themes of life and the experiences we all share. I try to reveal something about myself to draw in the viewer and invite them to tap into their own life experiences – to see parts of themselves, and compare my images to their own memories.
Natural Setting Series – A dead rabbit can be seen as a metaphor for the fleeting nature of life and what it is like to bear witness to it; other images include constructions of people and place, and touch on the surreal tension created between humans and our reconstructed ‘nature’. Likewise, other images highlight the ironic use of fabricated natural objects placed within a natural setting. These different scenes in the Natural Setting series explore the same question – why do we feel compelled to re-create natural environments and how do we interact with them?
