• Imagine being born again.

Only this time your mother is the earth and you come fully equipped with memories, knowledge and a belief system.

What raw emotions are evoked when the first thing you are confronted with is an environment completely foreign to what you were expecting?
Fear, confusion, doubt and loneliness.
Or because of the new environment one may lose their inhibitions, feel joy or perhaps discover inner strength and courage.

Maybe the nine images are a true metaphorical reflection of the artists soul?
His background and love for the stage and theatre.
His longing to find true love and a wanting audience.
The ongoing battle of time and money between industry and creative
fulfilment.

Born from this earth, the series, everyone deserves a new beginning, a chance to start over.

  • Part of a series that will be exhibited (and on sale – signed & limited to an edition of 2) during Art Melbourne April 09 at The Royal Exhibition Buildings in Melbourne.

My unending gratitude to the beautiful souls that are Jo and James whose work as an artists and models is truely inspiring!

    Powerful image…..

    Perfect location, brilliant light….

    You’ve really captured something primal and beautiful. Love the juxtaposition of industrial man made and intangible human made.
