About Collection

If you have kids then you may well, like me, have spent many hours sitting at your dining table staring into your water glass (or maybe something stronger)! I started taking photos of my water glass around February 2021, since then my photo collection has grown considerably. I am attracted to the shapes I see, the reflections and refractions and how they change due to how much water is in the glass or what objects are nearby. In this abstract still-life series I am using acrylic paint to explore the lines and shapes observed in the water glass. I build up the shapes using different textures with the paint, adding collage of printed tissue paper, and glazing with both acrylics and water-based media.
