The ‘ZOO’ series has been developed in parallel to the ‘Writing’ series and other works. These are strong images, predominantly pools of colour or of black or white in distorted but recognisable shapes. They are explorations of light in relation to form and meaning. Each image has sufficient representational structure to be recognisable but yet is sufficiently distorted to allow the viewers gaze and imagination to explore its possibilities. Their statement seems simplified and primeval but becomes complex on closer inspection as the textures of the surface and the reflection of light on the corrugations of the surface texture steal the viewer’s attention. The lens of perception adjusts with the distance of observation.
