Captured Movement

Collection of Works

Each person depicted is an athlete and my practice aims to revel in the possibilities and celebration of the human body.

I have chosen to create these as black and white photographs to focus on the shapes, tones and textures of the body. Stimulating an emotional response, my drawings and digital photographs not only rejoice in the anatomical contraction of muscle but also capture the human body in a state of discomfort through this movement, provoking an audience response and asking them to engage in these moments too.
