“We do not see it start and yet it always starts the same way, that is, it flees the object nearby and right away it is far off, elsewhere in the space of elsewhere” Gaston Bachelard, The Poetics of Intimate Spaces

These images (like much of my work) are about those times when, surrounded with the objects of everyday life, our minds leave the space of the here and now and drift into the realms of the imagination and memory. References to high art, grandiose plans and half formed ambitions are presented centre stage and played out by a cast of pots and pans and fruit and veg.
