Coming in Waves
Coming in Waves is a body of work centred on the sea and the debris, both natural and man-made, left behind by the tide. The images depict the intricate details and patterns found in the shells, weeds and other sea life on the shoreline. These objects may not be considered in themselves beautiful, however when removed from their normally distracting context and reimagined through drawings and etchings a new aesthetic is achieved. The detailed imagery dissolves away into a fine line work of pixelations. Man-made objects appear comfortably within the composition, camouflaged amongst naturally occurring ocean debris. The pixelated imagery references the slow return of each object to its original components or elements thus reflecting on the transience of life.
Opening Friday 5 January, 6pm.
