STATEMENT
By overlaying colour within the still life landscape, the Colourfields series seeks to explore a theme of 'renewal'. This proposition is complemented with reference to the poem 'To Autumn' - written by the English romantic poet John Keats (1795 - 1821) - each of the sixteen artworks being titled as a line extracted from the original prose.

Images photographed during the autumn of 2013 were revisited six months later, with an application of Aniline dye inks. This process sought to revive and regenerate the flora forgotten from a previous point in time, whilst altering the original materiality. The pigment of these aniline dyes is fugitive. Its intensity decays rapidly. Therefore these reawakened, transient artworks were frozen in time, by means of scanning, and reproduction as lambda prints.
