Info

2020

March 2020. This quarantine journal explores my confinement in Paris, reinventing every day objects, giving them a pictorial sense and an often abstract appearance in both spontaneous scenes and carefully constructed compositions. Immersed in my closed apartment the images are intimate, tightly framed with raw light using mostly natural window light that bounced off the walls, on to the wooden floor before finally fading away. Going over and over intimate everyday life meant I saw it differently, these images transform daily life into a strange world of contrasts; a strainer is used as a light filter to sculpt a face and plants become a sensual material casting shadows and hints of colours that create an original world.
