    Bronze in Fine Art / Landscape

With increasing levels of complexity in our lives, I’ve come to the realisation that it is important to strip back and just be. With this clarity of thought, I made the short journey to the coast with the aim of deconstructing the multiple layers in this scene. With black and white in mind, I achieved this by applying a long exposure to smooth out the waves which accentuated the simplicity of the sea defences. I balanced the wind farms in the background bringing into focus how sustainability can co-exist with and support nature and vice versa.
