I'll be showing some new work at Arena Galleries this week when Colonize: Revisited opens at Arena Gallery in Liverpool this Thursday. The studios have a great energy to them so it was a pleasure to be there installing today and having a nosy around. The exhibition is a kind of follow up to the recent exhibition in Jamestown, New York (photos from which I will put on here at some point, I promise) with the work I'm showing directly influenced by my residency over there.
For want of a better name I've been referring to these images as the Nightscape series, after misreading the title of a Stephen King book on my reading shelf. But the name seemed apt, and it stuck. I often suffer insomnia and these microphotographs are from one of my more productive bouts, pinpoints of light illuminating oases of colour in the darkness.
