Art Description

Photography: C-type on Paper.

Long standing interest and fascination with aeroplanes.

The aircraft used in the image making are small scale models 1/700 scale. I choose models of aircraft from a military background as these have a potential to inspire both dread and excitement. In real life, they are encountered as perhaps manifestations of a near sublime experience when seen and heard.There is irony in choosing scaled down representations/models of the real things.

The photo-drawings, I choose to give them such a description, are playful but, I never forget that these machines were originally designed to wreak great harm.This could be viewed as a complexity of differing approaches to constituting a meaning to the making of these images and their interpretation. Other than distorted aeroplane forms shapes on a dark background, they perhaps have only a contemporary decorative function, the significance of which again, requires a more precise definition.The border lines between play, playthings, reality and real things are worthy of investigation.This too may another part of their purpose.

Available as in a A3, A2, A1 format. 5cm border or, you can specify a border size.
