CANAL MIRROR

The Exhibition

An Heritage site, with the right light the canal is a mirror reflecting the surrounding area. Capturing that beauty in the water of the wryley & Essington Canal was the main objective of the artist. At the time when the photographs were being made, a mild breeze created waves of movement on the surface of the water, visible in the image used for the title ‘Canal Mirror.’ The images are surreal, translucent and spectacular. I quote the artist, “I was inspired and began to seek out ways in which I could express the impressions and sensations, the canal walks were making on my emotions.
