Noetic From the Greek noēsis / noētikos, meaning inner wisdom, direct knowing, intuition, or implicit understanding.

This project questions whether contemporary art always requires a narrative, or is there a role for art as a purely visual experience: art which resonates directly with the viewer? Through the use of a muted colour palette - and fine silk gauze, to which other elements may be added - these minimalistic arrangements seek to hold the viewer’s gaze and engender an act of calming contemplation for its own sake.

“In this moment of collective pause, appreciation of the still life - and

the careful looking it involves - has never felt more relevant.”

- Arpad Kovacs,

Assistant Curator, Dept of Photography, J. Paul Getty Museum 

My work primarily centres around engagement with the visual experience – from observing the ordinary and the overlooked I aim to capture ephemeral moments of beauty and calm. I am interested in shapes, tones and textures and how light can become an object when captured within the frame. I enjoy exploring the tactile and visual qualities inherent to different types of paper and creating a physical print is intrinsic to my practice.

When I am photographing, I become absorbed by what I see in the viewfinder. I try to capture what it is that I feel in the moment. It is not about what do I look for, but more what do I respond to?
