Back lamp Part II

Another awesome lampshade. ‘I’m kind of in love with this one, it’s so pretty. I may have to use it again.

The processing turned out slightly different on this image. I love the depth of shadow under the lampshade and through the back and how it contrasts with the flatness of the chest of drawers.

Conceptually, I’m exploring the meeting of functionality between forms: the living and once was living; the static and supposedly animated – although not in this series! The materials these objects were made from were all once parts of living things. Now de-animated for our functional consumption and aesthetic requirements.

Back and chest of drawers: my own.

Experimenting with surrealism.

I’m really enjoying a new journey. Freedom to follow my imagination in this weird and wonderful direction! I love quirky furniture so pairing it with self portraiture is a great fit for me.

I’m going to keep exploring.

Taking photos of furniture outside of my house might be the first step I need. Looking for interesting period furniture to photograph! Any ideas?
