Breezes from a whole other world

With these pieces my intention was to invoke those fleeting moments when a brief sight or sound unlocks an unexpected flood of intense emotion and transports us to another place. A memory, maybe, a feeling suppressed or a desire unexplored. It's summed up beautifully by this quote from the writer James Carroll:

We spend most of our time and energy in a kind of horizontal thinking. We move along the surface of things . . but there are times when we stop. We sit still. We lose ourselves in a pile of leaves or its memory. We listen, and breezes from a whole other world begin to whisper.” 

Some of these images are available as limited edition prints here. You can find out how I made them on my blog here.
