I am a local artist working in Belfast, creating a different way of seeing what we see every day. We see the City Hall or the Opera house or the Albert clock, but seldom do we actually look at the detail or beauty of our built environment.
My work explores the detail and expands it into a kaleidoscope of colour and pattern. My photographic collages encourages the viewer to see the world around them in a refreshing and exciting way. I have studied in minute detail landmarks of our city, photographically mapping the form and surface of traditional and modern landmarks. Then focusing on small elements have cut and joined the image together creating a symmetrical kaleidoscopic view. I hope to encourage the viewer to realise the beauty in the environment around us, environment that we walk past everyday and ignore or take for granted.
