You must find a dramatic image to publicise your exhibition – that’s what the #NAF18 organisers tell you. This year it was easy because Meagen gave me a photo shoot and we got some really striking images. For the photo shoot I made a set of motifs from tree ferns, branches and lightning that I projected on to her. Meagen struck some amazing poses for me: strong, beautiful and challenging all at once.
I re-inserted these new images back into the originals I’d worked from. There’s two pictures from the shoot at #NAF18. They’re called The High Priestess and Justice. Somehow they fitted into the themes of the two Tarot cards. The High Priestess gazes out from deep within your subconscious, rooted in the natural world. Justice looks at the past and the present and her many faces reflect all of your past decisions. They’re new additions to the Symmetry series I showed at last years Arts Festival.
I was extremely fortunate to have a second photo shoot – this time with Natalie who featured in last year’s exhibition – but that must wait for a another post.
