Artist Statement 2013

Trace Wings

Having worked in the mediums of Super 8 filmmaking, photography, collage and visual poetry over the last 20 years, I have been attracted to the material qualities of filmmaking that could be produced by using soft focus, camera movement and single frame accumulation. I especially enjoy the fractured narrative abstraction that ensues.
For ‘Trace Wings’ I have collaged a selection of digitised and reimaged film frames derived from my original Super 8 films. The resulting images trace moods and memories of loss and displacement as well as joy and intrigue, selected from a personal dairy of experimental films and continuing the theme of abstract narration
