My images capture the moment when reality and other worlds collide, and “Emergence” expresses the power of this collision with a parallel universe in a most expressive manner- the viewer has tripped into a very beautiful ambiguous place. There is strong movement, action and drama about to unfold as this entity “emerges”.
The real world here is already effected by a strong colour shift, and the force of emergence is blasting the earth – the expectation of unfolding drama excites my sense of wonder. Where has this come from, what will unfold and how or why am I perceiving this? I enjoy art pushing me to question perception, and my place in the world.
The colour and drama of this large image impact my emotions as I cannot help but become lost in this collision and feel both the fragility and sense the beauty of this world.
The exhibition is current until Saturday 2 August 2014.
