New Work | New Website

August 12, 2014

New Work | New WebsiteAfter many months of working in the studio, I’m pleased to announce a new body of work today, featuring colour floral portraits.  This new series is being launched through my new website, which also goes live today.  It’s been a busy year!

In this digitally connected world, where a wide range of platforms are used to access the internet – from desktop PCs to tablets computers to mobile phones – I considered it to be very important that using my website and viewing the work be a user-friendly, content-rich experience, but still making sure that the emphasis is on the work.

I felt that after working on the more sombre black and white series Petalum, it was time to look at producing a series which could be seen as being the opposite in style and tone – light, airy and colourful.  Considering that so much of my previous work has been in monochrome, I have to say that working in colour has been an enjoyable experience, but at the same time I’ve had to work at ensuring that colour didn’t take centre stage; I considered it to be an equal component of each image and that it shouldn’t overwhelm the other elements that comprised each study.

It’s my intention that this is the start of an ongoing series of colour floral studies, so more to come!

The blog you’re currently viewing has now been replaced by the News page on the new website, so this post will be the last entry on this blog.  If you pay a visit to the new site and subscribe – via RSS, Facebook, Twitter and other social media – you’ll be the first to receive updates on my new work, exhibitions and all the other news.

Thanks for your interest and looking forward to seeing you over at the new website.

ARTIST REPRESENTATION – WESTON GALLERY, CARMEL, CA

November 24, 2010

I’m very pleased to announce that the prestigious Weston Gallery in Carmel, California, is now representing my work, and prints from my Behind The Eyes series will be featured in an up-and-coming group exhibition in the New Year (details to follow soon).  I’m honoured to be represented by the Gallery and am very much looking forward to our collaboration.

From the Gallery’s website:

“The Weston Gallery is one of the oldest photographic galleries in the world, a world leader in the field of fine vintage and contemporary works by Ansel Adams, Edward Weston, Yousuf Karsh, Michael Kenna, Chip Hooper, Brett Weston and many others.  This position of leadership stems from our deep dedication to the medium. We deal specifically in photographs as works of art.

We emphasize those works which we feel are important in the overall history of 19th, 20th and 21st Century art. We are fortunate to have an extensive inventory and a wealth of knowledge available to assist any collector”.

A wide range of my monochrome and colour images are available from the gallery, with further information on their website at:
