Magazine love

Time Thighs and Self Lit in Pink have been published in ‘Artist Portfolio Magazine’!

Venturing into something new and unknown is daunting. I love creating art, but I still get pulled down by the nagging voice telling me I’m not good enough and I’ll never get anywhere with it.

So thank you Artist Portfolio Magazine for the nudge in the right direction.

Artist Portfolio Magazine is a bimonthly independent art magazine that features emerging and established artists from around the world. It has an open art submission process, which is free (kudos), and considers all mediums.

I am honoured and grateful to be featured, and pretty happy too 🙂

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.

Time thighs

How quickly we travel through life. Always running to get somewhere. Only to reach the end and realise that it was the journey, and not the destination, which was important.


This image is the beginning of a new series. A journey into surrealism: combining my love of form and texture, and interesting furniture. The legs and chest of drawers belong to me. The vase is my mum’s. The clock is courtesy of unsplash.com


Back lamp

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?

Stuck

It’s a lot easier to be stuck than you’d think. Getting unstuck, that’s hard. Knowing you are stuck, even harder.

I was stuck. Stuck in fear. Stuck in the past. I’m not stuck anymore.

I can feel my mind wandering down a different creative path. The Albatross Project is nearing it’s end. I have a few more images I want to add to the series, but I’m itching to create beyond it.
