Cadence explores the interplay between rhythm and form in this curated collection of my recent photographic and mixed media works. While "cadence" is often associated with music and language, considering art through the lens of visual cadence allows the viewer to consider the movement and energy that flows through individual works, between different mediums, and throughout the exhibition as a whole.
In this exhibit I have included pieces from a number of different photographic series which derive inspiration from nature, mythology, psychology and surrealism.  The paintings range from neutral Zen inspired pieces, to more colourful compositions. It also includes a number of floral paintings which are a recent passion of mine.
By juxtaposing these varied pieces into a curated exhibit, I am inviting viewers to explore the flow of my artistic practice as it extends beyond individual pieces.  My hope is that the viewer will be sparked by the joy I feel when creating both photography and mixed media work.
