This video is the lit­tle sis­ter to my first solo pho­tog­ra­phy exhi­bi­tion, Arabesque.
A series of dance por­traits, printed onto silk, explor­ing motion.
The exhi­bi­tion was part of Brighton Photo Fringe 2012 and was hung at Naked Tea & Cof­fee Com­pany for 6 weeks, in which the pub­lic were invited to inter­act with the artworks.

This video describes the tex­ture and feel­ing of the Silk Habouti and its rela­tion­ship with light.

Arabesque — BPF 2012 — My first solo Exhibition

Arabesque - Brighton Photo Fringe 2012

Dance por­traits printed onto fabric.

Poster designer: Beth Radish

Arabesque’ is a grace­ful posi­tion in dance. In an ongo­ing project, I have
col­lab­o­rated with dancers Elena Saorin and Leo Brizad to cre­ate a series of images
explor­ing motion. My back­ground in film­mak­ing has drawn my atten­tion to the way
dif­fer­ent medi­ums inter­pret light. I have devel­oped a visual lan­guage that
encom­passes multi dis­ci­pli­nary philoso­phies. I look to the work of such artists as
Degas, Vit­to­rio Storaro, Car­avag­gio, Pina Bausch and the Impres­sion­ists; draw­ing
inspi­ra­tion from their empha­sis on cap­tur­ing light and move­ment. I have
exper­i­mented with these ideas fur­ther by print­ing onto fab­ric, as a mem­ber of the
audi­ence you are wel­come to touch the pieces, to become involved in their move­ment.
The agi­ta­tion of the fab­ric raises aware­ness of both the abstract nature of the
image as well as of the tex­ture within it.

Fab­ric Print­ers: Cameron Gilmartin

Read Beth’s blog about the exhi­bi­tion here

I chose 3 pho­tographs from a col­lec­tion which I shot recently of an artist, Alex Burrows-McGill paint­ing a live per­for­mance of Beth Radish. The result­ing pho­tographs, inspired by the other 2 artists, resem­bled the paint­ings, in their tex­ture & move­ment and this was enhanced when Colourstream printed them onto fine art water colour paper.

The whole piece: performance, paint­ing & pho­tog­ra­phy were called ‘Paint­ing the Female Nude’
