Series Narrative:

Point De Fusion
With the intention of generating an awareness of the earth’s changing climate, the Point de Fusion series depicts natural landscapes that appear to be melting into abstraction. With a high aesthetic value, the series aims to connect viewers by evoking a sense of awe and wonder, with a prophetic underlying current. As the earth’s climate system is rapidly changing, global warming is accelerating at an alarming rate, requiring consumers to rethink choices in an economy dependent on the use of fossil fuels. The intention of this body of work is to incite a need for change, enhancing awareness of an issue that affects us all. The title, Point de Fusion, references the melting point of an object at atmospheric pressure; the moment when its physical state changes and it becomes a liquid. As the landscape begins to thaw, the idea of motion is implied in an image that was once still. The artist’s hand is seen in the digital manipulation of the photograph, with vertical lines descending towards the bottom of the frame; a gravitational pull of the viewer’s eye towards an “unknown”.
