A Statement of my most recent project:
For this project I have carried a previous theme forward and attempted to expand on the thoughts generated in past work. The concept of reality and what is real is a very loose thing and our perceptions and experiences colour the way we see the world around us. Is the colour you see the same as the colour I see? What is right by your standards and what is wrong? If an object moves beyond your ability to perceive it, does it still exist?
These are all very broad questions; ones that I found it were difficult to solve in a small series of artworks. Therefore for this project I have narrowed the questions down to the theme of dreams and whether what we perceive there is real.
In these photographs I have attempted to recreate a series of separate dreams that I have experienced over a period of time. The pieces are entirely separate and are not linked in any way; therefore I have attempted to demonstrate this with layout, size and placement. Test 1 and Test 2 are connected merely because the dreams they portray occurred back to back to seem to have no other correlation. The pieces are entitled Test 1, 2, 3 and 4 because to my eyes they are experiments in a much larger and longer running project theme, and while they are entirely separate, should be treated as part of an experimental stage that will culminate at the end of the year.
