It's been a little while since I last posted anything,
so I thought I'd drop a few teasers for the upcoming

at the Artist Residence Hotel, Brighton.
There will be a facebook group set up with more
information and emails sent around etc.

Some long exposure photos taken the other day down
on the beach by the West Pier. The fog and rain helped
me get some quite surreal shots. They have the feel of a
film still, the brief point in between something happening.

A few fairly recent 8x10inch photo pieces.
The underlying theme of my Brighton exhibition will
be a paraellel between the Brighton seafront/attractions,
and Coney Island NYC.
As with most of my work, the representation of memories
and place is a big part, but it is tackled in a subtle and
non-obvious manner.
Much of the imagery produced thus far has the qualities of
a fleeting, and often surreal, memory. I tend to play alot with
the idea of leaving things open or slightly unfinished, almost
like an open ended narrative.

A hand cut stencil of the Brighton West Pier
in 5 seperate A3 size sections.
Nearer to the date of the exhibition, it will placed
across 5 20 x 24 inch sections of darkroom paper.
Once the stencil has been exposed for maybe a day
or two and then removed, it should leave a ghostly
impression behind.
I wanted to stay away from the standard photographic
representations of the pier that are so commonly seen.
This will be my way of referencing the fragility of the
remains of the pier, as well as alluding to it as kind
of fading memory.

A few photos of the studio I'm currently working
in during my residency in Brighton.
I'm working on a variety of pieces on aluminium,
canvas, paper and darkroom paper.
Hopefully now that I'm (finally) in some kind of working
pattern, I'll be updating more often.
