HIGH OVER THE OCEAN AT THE WITCHING HOUR
This series of prints reflects on an issue I believe to be very important. At the time of production I felt a certain isolation from a large number of people and felt the need to portray this alongside my ever growing dissatisfaction with, and separation from, the society that we all live in. I wanted to document how I felt about different matters in a way that wasn’t direct. I didn’t just want to give the viewer the answer in plain sight. I aimed to do this by illustrating forward and quite bold statements and encrypting them in an alphabet of symbols. Below can be seen the translations of the sentences of symbols in each print.
HIGH – An escape from our world is not easily found.
OVER – Isolation often comes when you are surrounded by a crowd.
THE – A natural connection has been lost by too many.
OCEAN – The seas horizon sings of an unfamiliar land.
AT – To follow everyone and everything is rarely right.
THE – Don't dismiss what you don't understand.
WITCHING – Control in our society is an illusion.
HOUR – Distractions in our lives conceal true reality.
