Current show as part of my residency at St.Petersburg Artist Residency in Russia.
Photographic works based on the Strange Loop concept of working ones way through a seemingly hierarchical structure giving the impression of moving forward only to end up back where you started thus forming a Strange Loop. These works are about the strange landscape of Iceland, being stuck, but with a great sense of momentum occurring at the same time. Part biographical, the works represent my own Strange Loop of returning to Iceland in the exact opposite order from arriving there 3 years previously, and the events that occurred in between including losing all my digital data and all the images I had spent 3 months making thus being back at the start of a very strange loop.
