INVITATION TO A MICROCOSMOS is an experiment into the documentation of singular experiences, moments and people in my everyday life. Images are built from photographs of friends, family and environments. This form, a kind of self-portraiture, captures elements of celebration and energy within moments whether unusual or mundane of personal experience. There is a cathartic element at play, and in this series, I focus on capturing moments of joy to balance the chaotic narrative playing out in my reality. I use colour theory and expressive mark-making to dynamically illuminate the narratives in my work.
