Artist's Statement

I think they should not look for, but look passively---and try to receive what the painting has to offer and not bring a subject matter or preconceived idea of what they are to be looking for.                                                                                                                                - Jackson Pollock, 1950 -

“…is in the details” is a series of images documenting my exploration of urban industrial sites and premises, and how I see the effects of man and nature in these places.

I love photographing industrial sites, empty buildings, anywhere that is rough, unfinished and unpolished and filled with the detritus of industrial and working life. People are rarely present, but you can see the presence of people: in the things they worked with, the things they created or destroyed, or the things they left behind, either forgotten or discarded.

These are not photographs of large industrial landscapes but of singularly small details in the landscape. They contemplate shape, colour, composition, texture and unexpected and unintended winsomeness.

The composition and formal structure of these accidental landscapes transform insignificant fragments of an urban site into abstract and enigmatic images. The interpretation of the abstraction is left to the imagination of the viewer.
