These images are digital collages assembled on my computer from photographic sources and algorithmic elements. I’ve been working with fragments, pieces and bits of images. In particular, fragments of human form from sculpture and extreme close-ups of flowers. I process, combine and layer the results to create a very rich image-space which I explore to find the moods I’m looking for.

By ‘image-space’ I mean a range of possibility, a complex and multi-dimensional space of possible images. More of this, less of that, a different juxtaposition and the mood changes. Combining and re-combining, layering and manipulating, I find a glimpse of something. Then I compose and edit the image to capture that glimpse. Sometimes it works, and I keep it. Sometimes it doesn’t, and I start again.
