Here in Cornwall, we are fortunate to live in a coastal area where much of the local geology is exposed in the cliff-face, boulders and beach pebbles. A lot of my work from this intensive period involved using a layering process by combining photographic techniques with collage materials, and the resulting images mounted within a light box. This series of work mirrored my own experience of looking down a microscope at thin sections of rock. What interested me most was the way I could exploit different densities between each layer using either colour or texture to either block or admit the passage of light between the layers. Oh, and a Happy New Year to you!
