Meeting Apollo Series
I use photographic images from my travels and print them using the traditional C-type based process. I then select and transform their formal pictorial elements, such as shadows and architectural lines, into a symmetrical mosaic of abstracted patterns.
The ensuing digital composites retain their individual photographic character while generating a complex and puzzling effect of an abstract image, producing an optical illusion for the viewers.
Printed on a matt surface of Hahnemuehle Photo Rag Paper, the results are images which visually and aesthetically oscillate between a photographically based print, a drawing or a lithograph. The prints are mounted on aluminum and backed with a wooden frame.
As a matter of interest ‘Enscribed Tablet’ resides at the University Club of Western Australia and ‘Beguiled by the Curve’, ‘Marco Polo Blush’ and ‘Motif in Marble’ were purchased by the Curtin Student Guild, Curtin University, Western Australia.
The images in this post are alphabetically listed and are mostly composites of 118.9 x 84.1cms, with two smaller images (‘Windmills’ and ‘Marco Polo Blush’), which measure 59.4 x 42 cms.
‘Rhodes Byway’ 1 & 2, and ‘Street of the Knights’ are also printed on Hahnemuehle Photo Rag Paper, measure 50 x 50 cms and are classically framed without glass.
