DESCRIPTION

This image is from a series reflecting my long interest with architecture or FROZEN MUSIC, to use Goethe’s phrase. In inhabiting the natural world, we human beings have always created defined boundaries around ourselves. As soon as we emerged from caves we began to construct shelters, then walls and fences, hedges and moats around our own spaces.

In seeking to express the architectural equivalence of harmony to dissonance, rubato to staccato, fortissimo to pianissimo, this series of black and white images explore the form, texture and graphics of surfaces and edges, searching to create a resonant beauty, echoing a deep primeval yearning for the comfort of boundaries.
