New figurative works underway


Figurative works have always been my great nemesis, technically fraught with problems, with hand made silk dresses and large format cameras that are difficult to handle & shoot.  

Here a test shot from last night on grainy 5*4" high speed polaroid stock dated 1987, blooms with colour and organic life. I have not shot figurative works since moscow in 2013 which have all been executed in custom tanks, here on the #BaaAtoll these works are created offshore in the deep waters of the Indian ocean using studio made lighting and a very brave young lady. Experimenting with halo like bubble formations referencing my earlier 2012 work ‘Witness’ from 'A beautiful announcement of death’. No post production. So much more to follow.
