The two framed photographic images are extracts from a larger solo exhibition titled Shadow Substance which included twelve other photographic images, as well as performative moving image works and sculptural elements. 

The works were all contextualised by broad research primarily exploring depth psychology, with particular emphasis on polarities, such as ego/shadow, good/evil, life/death etc., but more broadly the human condition; utilising archetypal symbology to engage the viewer in a broad and personal meditation on the complexities and dualities of the human psyche.

Regarding the two images here, out of context from the exhibition they initially were born into, Dr Philip Braham summarised them well with the following dialogue: ‘There is a tangible sense of tenderness in your staged photos that bring Eros and Thanatos, sexual desire, and death drive together.’
