Further information

'My photographic work consists mostly of multiple images, in which the interaction between images is a major factor.' Pat Brassington 1998

The collected images in 'Cumulus analysis' recall the effect of dread. When the senses, especially touch and sight, are heightened by anxiety apparently simple images can become nightmarish. A witty and evocative dialogue takes place in 'Cumulus analysis' between images of sight and blindness, those of water and air, fish and human form. Encapsulated within a minimalist grid, which imposes order, the work in actuality enhances the tangential and the emotional.
