These photographs come from a series taken in Tokyo early in 2015. They take advantage of the opportunistic views
seen from my window though to the hotel diagonally opposite, revealing the transparency within the architecture. What
I found engaging was the juxtaposition of the formalism of the architecture with the almost abstracted and varied images
of the guests within. I have tried to capture a sense of dehumanising and intimacy together. These images speak to the
multiplicity of ways we can misunderstand our fellow human by making assumptions about what we think might be
Lost in Translation
This series was made for my 50th anniversary in Melbourne. I arrived by boat when I was as infant as a
British immigrant withmy parents who were Ten Pound Poms. Shown at Takt Gallery, Berlin, September
Each digital image is 43 x 41cm.
This series of images are stills from videos recorded through the window with two iPhones to create a split screen
effect. I am exploring the idea of surveyance and voyerism, and capture the accidential beauty caught in the silhouettes
and shadows of folliage that provides a screen of privacy. These videos were taken at various times throughout the day
from daybreak to evening.
A series of photographs taken along Karl Marx Allee through to Alexander Platz and behond, Berlin, September 2014.
This body of work has been created following a three month residency I undertook in Berlin in 2014. Whilst there I made several
visits to the Bauhaus Museums in Berlin and Dessau. The Bauhaus is one of the most influential modernist art schools of the
20th century. The reigning principles were unity of form and function, the idea that design is in service of the community, and a
belief in the perfection and efficiency of geometry.

The five welded sculptures examine an idea advanced by the Bauhaus; how an object could be explored by reducing it to
an outline. I have explored this idea by creating abstracted architectural forms.
Size various - around 400mm x 500mm x 500mm
These photographs were part of the exhibition and come from a large series of images taken in Berlin. I noticed in the glass
façades the multiple imagery creating a collage of spatial overlays. These windows revealed the interiors before me,
reflected the exteriors behind and skies above me and sometimes showed the view through to the back and beyond the
glass walls of the building. At times it seemed as though the entire surrounding environment was reflected and referred
back to an ever changing to and fro interplay of shifting light, colours and forms. A slight change in position altered the
cryptic imagery before me. These images are from a larger series photographs I took as I cycled daily from my apartment in
Weserstraße, in Friedrichshain to various locations throughout Berlin.
All Images are 600mm x 600mm
