Event Details

I am interested in the relationship between the material and immaterial and its bearing upon us.

I am currently researching and producing lens based work that uses archetypal symbolism: Exploring the idea that meaning has become embedded in our perception of certain objects and their images. The proposition being that structures of the images will vary from culture to culture and person to person but are not limitless or chaotic; they are archaic and shared by all people.

The meaning of these symbolic images may not always be obvious, they may appear surreal; however our psyche interprets their intention (albeit objectively or subjectively); it is the root capacity of symbolism to spark connections in the mind and convey meaning.

Each piece is like a jigsaw mystery, whose parts must be understood to fully grasp their relevance as a whole. It is my intention that they become richer through this approach; ‘The whole becoming greater than the sum of its parts.’

Additional Workshop with lens based media artist Rory Buckland
Join a workshop at 1A Inverness Place, on Tue 16 from 6:30pm.

Symbolic Imagery: Exploring the mind through writing and discussion about imagery.

It is the root capacity of symbolism to spark connections in the mind and convey meaning. In this workshop participants will explore their responses to symbolism and the associations they make.

Through writing and discussion we will examine the landscape of the psyche and the connections sparked in response to the images.

The intention is to create a relaxed environment and it will be the individual’s choice whether or not to partake in group discussion. Some will prefer just to write about the associations they see.
