Long waves, 2005

Ammonite sky

The prints Longwave and Ammonite sky were inspired by the Tsunami of Boxing Day 2004, their long shapes originating from weather satellite imagery which I stretched and enhanced until they reminded me of a wave, notably the Japanese printmaker Hiroshige's famous wave, which also represented a Tsunami.

Silverlining and Cloud-sequence are both works on canvas, using clips of different cloud imagery like a storyboard or time-lapse photograph, they aim to represent several different moments of time simultaneously.

The sequence of images across the bottom of the pink lithograph Cloud-sequence comes from a series of real satellite passes tracking a storm as it crosses the Atlantic.
