PICTURES OF FICTION
In Revision I have overlayed and blended images of associated motifs; poignant glimpses of texts; arcane iconography and various graphic devices that supplement an impression of either the relevant period of history or contemporary culture that I want to convey in the image. It’s pictorialist photo-fiction characterised by secret stories disclosed within a picture. I hint at vestiges of past human activity, scenes of conflict, divinity or esoteric and occult folklore. I ask my viewer to look deeper into and beyond their initial reception of the photograph - to revise and revisit their vision, appreciation and understanding of the subject matter.
I offer these images intentionally as open ended statements as to what they mean; interpretations differ and responses are intrinsically personal. I provide hints and clues but no solutions, they’re your own conclusions.
