Paraphrasing Nature
Graham Sutherland first used the expression "paraphrasing nature" to decribe his work in Pembrokeshire where he developed his sketches of roots, rocks etc to show geometric shapes, fantastical creatures and insects. Inspired by his approach, and using many of the same influences I have manipulated the photographic images to try and enhance the surreal of what is ordinary.
