Photography: Color, Digital and Photo on Paper.
Dreaming of dreaming I create my work from my dreams, my desires, my loss, my longings. I am always learning, trying new things. Seeing what I can do rather than showing what I can do. In this image I am seeing if I can recreate that feeling I felt when a horrific event happened in my life and I was stripped bare of feelings, of happiness, sadness, possessions, desires and wants. I existed, suspended in my life for a period of time. Time stood still. Slowed right down. I chose these two colours because orange is the opposite of tourquoise on the colour wheel. It makes the subject stand out, be suspended within the image. I hope to make the viewer pause a while to wonder at the image and its meaning. On two occasions art curators have hung this image upside down. That makes me smile.
