Duos, sets and on themes

My current submission ideas for a monthly zine named: Variations On, which "celebrates a collection of artistic variations on a theme."  This month the theme is 'Light.' Rather appropriate, as I consider my premier medium exactly that. Being the kind of artist who refuses to delve too deeply into the waffle of theory behind a piece, I prefer semiotics; the symbols which already understood and those which belong to the sub-conscious and have a place in each viewer's individual sense of perception.  

The first duo is from a series I shot, using various sheer and transparent materials including plastic, perspex, cellophane and tulle. We played around with these surface and even though all layers enabled complete vision of the model, her behaviour indicated instinctual desires to hide. 

The second pair both use crushed paper to house light and cast shadows. Seeing things as they are in basic artistic elements: light, texture, shape, shadow, line, tone and contrast.
