Domestic objects have featured in my work for Images 2019 as vehicles for exploring enlarged, stylised forms and flat surfaces. Nonetheless, textures and tonal rendering have intruded as challenging alternatives often. Mono-printing techniques which I have been experimenting with have opened up interesting ways to layer surfaces. Physical environments that I am familiar with such as the extraordinary Lake Ballard in Western Australia, have also provided images which I have enjoyed developing through mono-printing. Environments involve spirit, abstract feeling which have proven much harder to capture visually than any domestic object‘s representational demands.
