The theme of the 'Driven to Abstraction' project is around the notion ‘Anthropocene’; the current geological age in which human activities have had an environmental impact on the Earth. However, the subject matter is not the primary driver, the desire to find new ways to express the vision through unconventional methods that challenge the viewer is the motivating force behind the work
'Plastic Landscapes', 'Alchemical Painting' and 'No Blue No Green' series are the result of an experimental approach which was employed to explore process, chance and engagement. Exploring the medium of photography in its bare essence; light sensitive paper, light and chemicals. The resulting abstract images are
a natural progression from my favoured method of photography - the Photogram.
