    Iridescent Trees

    10 Oct 2020 – 31 Oct 2020

    The aim of my project was to research and explore my personal passion for trees, light and colour, inspired by my childhood. Trees are a visual emblem for nature, a source of life and wisdom. They evoke a primal sense of wonder and mystery, which has been a popular subject for artists and photographers, but why? Why are we fascinated by their wonder? For me my fascination began when I was younger and one which has stayed with me ever since. Light helps us to see colour and colour creates depth of tones and atmospheric effects. I am investigating how light and colour affects what we see and feel. Creating a project during a global pandemic has helped me to appreciate my local surroundings and see to trees in a new perspective. Also creating the project has been an outlet for me to express how I was feeling. I believe, we all need hope and reassurance in such changing time and trees are the perfect representation to symbolise community and strength. Trees can be a subject on their own or within the landscape or even in relationship to urban settings. As living things, they also mirror our character and moods and exist like us as both individuals and in communities. Trees are a part of our past, present and future.

    The Art in Nature, Land Sea and Sky.

    27 Jul 2020 – 31 Aug 2020

    My FMF project is called The Art in Nature, Land Sea and Sky, which explores the Art within the Landscape to create an emotional attachment and appreciation to the environment around you. Nature is an element which is both all around us, and deep within us, we are deeply connected to life both physically and mentally. The secure connection between Art and Nature has existed since early humans illustrated their first drawings onto the walls within caves. As a muse, Mother Nature could not possibly be more inspirational. In my photographs, I try and capture the light within the scenery to create drama and an emotional connection. The light within the Landscape is an aspect that can define both time and emotions. As an Art and Photography Teacher, both subjects are essential to me, and I cannot help but view the world around me in a different light. The collection of photographs I have taken for my Final Major Project are a personal investigation that investigates the relationship between Art and Nature using the land, sea and sky for inspiration. The decision to study MA Photography was to help me rebuild and develop as a person and as well as a photographer. I am passionate about teaching and learning, and one of my main goals is to encourage others to be creative and explore the world around them. I do class myself very fortunate that the area in which I live in is both urban and countryside. The Kent County is in the South East and is the home to many beautiful locations, and I hope my project, The Art in Nature, Land Sea and Sky demonstrates my love for nature and encourages others to go outside and explore.
