All Repeat ( Plus Variations)
The phrase 'Everything is the same as everything else' used to haunt me. I see things from a different perspective now; comparing today's world today to a world from years gone by. Everything is the same, only with variations.
Suburban English Magick
In that narrow zone of almost-country and never-city exists Suburban English Magick.
This is an exploration into modern day custom, belief and folklore in semi-rural Britain.
Favourite Graves is an ongoing photographic research archive. Since 2008 I have travelled to final resting places to research both their inhabitants and the history of the places themselves. With this research I strive to create new attachments to lives of those passed on, memories made for the living.
Old Father Thames
I search the River Thames at low tide, to find items of historical interest. These items lead me to in-depth research, allowing me to see into a mirror of our modern world. Reflected back is the past, pieced together with tangible, powerful objects, the flotsam and jetsam of the mysterious, tidal River Thames.
An investigation into women executed for heresy and/or witchcraft, from the 2nd Century AD - 18th Century.
I have so far completed over twenty portraits of accused individuals, imagined as young women, as well as written work, collages and videopoetry.
