Orb’s Gallery

This ‘orbsession’ has a total and complete hold over me – I love playing with the images to achieve satisfactory results. Actually, for me they are more than satisfactory, they are interesting, intriguing and innovative objets d’art.

When I look at an orb that I have created, I see the scene from  new perspective. each one that I’ve made so far has been taken from a photograph that I took; sometimes these images were simply the snapping of a moment with my family or friends, often taken whilst visiting somewhere such as a wildlife park or seaside town. But is the alteration of the perspective that gives each image a new life I think.

A new year heralds the start of something: out with the old and in with the new. So, how co-incidental is it that these new perspectives are revealed just at this moment in time? The part of me that is fascinated by tarot readings and the place of fate in our lives is equally intrigued by these ideas of looking at my life from a different perspective.

I’ve trawled back through around a decade of photographs to find images that have struck me as suitable for ronduration (yes… I think I just made that word up, but it’s a good one isn’t it! I find myself looking at the future differently too. Who knows where they’re going in 2014? Maybe, just possibly, the answer lies in turning things on their heads and taking a different approach.

I hope you enjoy each of these – I’ll be able to make some of them available for purchase as canvas prints quite soon -watch this space!
