I continue to be fascinated by grids, geometric, organic and contoured pattern making. These elements are featured in every picture that I produce.
I’m absorbed by surface and texture, and at galleries I get up close and examine the works from the distance from which they were produced. I love to slowly scan the surface textures, and see all the marks, strokes and nuances that were used in their creation.
Sometimes, when I’m reading, I start to drift, and find myself focusing on the shape and colour of the typography rather than the content. Or, I might dwell on an isolated phrase, rather than read it in context. I’m also quite comfortable looking at Arabic calligraphy purely in terms of shape and space, design and composition, with no comprehension of its meaning.
With some movies, it’s the cinematography and lighting that engages me and resonates.
