BENEATH

This image is one of my most discussed, critiqued pieces. It's confusing to the eye and there is a reason for this. At first glance it appears to be a few splashes of water on the surface of the ocean. Look closer and some things aren't quite right. Why is the sky green? Those splashes look more like bubbles. As an artist, the biggest compliment is when the viewer finds elements of your piece worthy of discussion or interpretation. I am delighted when I see people solving the puzzle of "Beneath". The title reveals it's secret. It's an inverted view of what lies beneath the Ocean after a wave has passed. For all the turbulence above the water line, there is a peaceful serenity beneath. The thunderous roar from above is muted and only a few effervescent bubbles break the surface of the underworld. jj

PURPLE RAIN

Purple Rain is an image I captured in early 2013. I had been experimenting with macro photography for about a month and purchasing the best quality flowers from Florists in the local area. I am by my own admission a perfectionist and would often agonise over the smallest flaw in very expensive flowers, cursing the florist for charging me top price for a bruised Tulip or Rose petal. Ironically on my way home from the Florist one afternoon I saw these beautiful little "spiders". I called them spiders because they evoked a memory from my childhood of a dead Huntsman spider on my bedroom floor. Recoiling from the wrath of my Mother's Mortein fuelled rage it curled up into a ball, it's legs up in the air, stiff, lifeless.. These little purple flowers were sprouting from a massive tree inside the local schoolyard. A branch was hanging over the fence and the flowers were all over the ground. I grabbed about a dozen little purple spiders and ever so gently transported them home to my lightbox. I must have taken 100 shots of my little Hunstman but I had the winner straight away. I had taken the shot with the spider's legs in the air but when I inverted the photo the dead spider came to life. It was "Purple Rain" jj
