My new photo work is a reflection on Nature and the absorbing beauty within natural forms and patterns. The hypnotic quality of the images is something which appeals to me and reminds me of gateways and portals into natural wonders. The branch of Psychology studying empirical aesthetics and Rorschachs Ink blot methods interests me and this work is a response to these ideas. I make fine art photos to investigate the question can art make you feel good The balance of my compositions pleases the human eye and reflecting the images amplifies the geometry within nature and reveals its beautiful complexity. Our inner selves recognize the connection between us and nature and responds to this, we recieve an auratic it fills the well of goodness inside and this responds by making us feel better.
The work was inspired by the work of a Psychologist Dr Nicola Street, working at my Local University her research presented my question can art make you feel good
My Photography grew into Environmental Art and I began making Public Art sculptures from living willow woven into structures. 16 years of Public art practice for my company willowarts.co.uk. building big living willow sculptures across the UK and share our love of working with nature and ecology.
The photography I create is intended to help to connect to the nature to be absorbed within the beautiful forms and escape into a new world of imagination.
