In Your Absence is an ongoing body of work I conceived in response to my partner emailing me digital photographs of the home cooked meals prepared whilst I was abroad. These digital photographs were emailed from our home in London whilst I was staying in Spoleto, Italy as an artist in residence. During the years that followed I decided to re-photograph these digital photographs on my laptop screen whilst away travelling on assignment, as well as during my time alone at our home. I therefore consider each image as an informal collaboration between us that we have both contributed to whilst being physically separate.
My intention with these works is to depict all aspects of the image with equal optical clarity, creating a transition from one reality to another that is increasingly undefined.
