New 2015 Art Collection

This body of work is a combination of my photography over the past decade, that has been digitally integrated and married into parts of well-known fine art works from artists such as Courbet, Degas, Matisse, and Monet. The contexts of the original works are challenged as well as bring to light the issues around appropriation, originality, and inspiration in the art world.
The subject is local and international, with urban and rural landscapes, examining the relationship between man and organic environment, and the manifold issues of space, people, architecture, geography, and heritage.
The human see-saw of cause and effect in urban environments: the juxtaposition of a seamlessly integrated, jagged, craggy rock face into a Cape Town cityscape; the parched earth amid Manhattan skyscrapers…this invites critical thinking, dialogue, and reflection.
