Fold, unfold

Fold, unfold is both elegy and rumination on a fractured sense of belonging and the uncertainty of 'role'.

Using metaphor and symbolism to weave threads of consistency through the series, and combining the traditions of still life with landscape, the photographs work in juxtaposition, each one informing and affecting the others in the sequence.

I am also interested in the silences that exist in between the images, the imaginary commas, or pauses that permeate and allow the series to breathe, and whilst the work portrays a peculiar sense of loss, it oscillates between the ambiguous and the unexplained.
