End of an era!

Despite the lockdown I have been working extremely hard over the last few months finishing off my final degree project. It has been incredibly challenging without a studio and with limited equipment but I made it thanks to the support and encouragement from my fiancee and peers! I am now ready for a well earned rest!

Check out the whole project in the gallery section!

When an individual starts the process of building a home they surround themselves with objects of personal expression - The space around them becomes an extension of self. But at some point, as is in our nature we pair off and our lives gradually become intertwined with another and become an amalgamation of personal and joint expression. The objects are no longer an extension of self, they are an extension of the couple.  Creating a home together is truly an act of deep intimacy. Using ceramics as a medium, Home celebrates this intimacy and the journey couples embark on together. From family heirlooms to contemporary tableware, Home explores the objects that are brought together within the domestic space in a juxtaposed fusion of desires and aesthetics. The work is influenced by contemporary Scandinavian design and adheres to the movements’ three fundamental guidelines: focus, minimalism and simplicity. Using simple lighting techniques each image is created to amplify the uniqueness and elegance of its subject whilst giving a gentle nod to the domestic spaces that have been meticulously curated and come to symbolise the merging of two individuals.


Form, Function & the Domestic

The idea of home and the affections we attach to it and the items we keep within it have, for a long time, captivated me. My current project is an extension of that “feeling” I am intrigued by the items we choose to fill our homes with and the constant tug of war waged between their functions and aesthetics. Home is a search for these items and a journey to discover how they interact with ourselves, the domestic space and the light and space around them. The work is made up of high end artistic ceramics created by ceramicist Lisa Krigel and my personal ceramic collection.


Nubyén Beauty Portraiture

I am not normally one to make commercial portraits, but recently I have been spending some time with Nubyén Beauty photographing their new range of activewear. Although not my speciality, it has been nice to use some different skills and meet new people within the industry.


Landscapes

Landscape photographs are another genre of image making that I love. Unfortunately I never seem to have enough time to go out and create them. I am hoping that this summer will give me an opportunity to go out with my camera & tripod and create some new images! In the meantime check out my commissioned landscapes on the main page.


Andy Lo Po

I have been working non stop over the last few months and there’s lots more work to do! I have however,  been lucky enough to meet lots of big industry names along the way, the likes of Andy to LoPo, John Wyatt Clark & Edward Fury. Some of them have even taken my Portrait! Hopefully I will get some down time soon so I can fully update this blog! Watch this space!

Wave Installation Opening

Recently I visited the Wave installation opening in Cardiff bay. Many of my friends and peers were exhibiting their work which was fabulous to see! 

It was also great to spend some down time with my peers with a few drinks!
