Award winning photography

 

I’m a professional photographer. I’ve worked and lived around the world, spending most of my adult life on the run from conformity and routine; it’s a lifestyle that lends itself well to exploring this vast Earth we call home. This virtual place is home to some of my latest photographic work and acts as a portal for workshop students who need to access course information online.

Sometimes I write stuff too.

Large format contemporary art

 

The foundations of my contemporary works are firmly embedded in a world of empathy, apathy, sexuality, humanity and solitude. I prioritise colour, line and shape above a clear definition of subject, letting associated texts fill in the blanks.

I initially work with analog film shot using a beater of a Nikon. Once the raw material has been captured, I move over to digital platforms, extracting my subjects and working them into a new, abstract yet defined compositions.

The texts are born out of experience; of personal loss, professional gain, social observation, questions of ethics and morals, of how and when and maybe, of quantum entanglement and buried cities in the dark of the moon. Each text is written alongside the creation of each artwork, and both develop together as a unity, an expression, a product that I am proud to call #jaco.

#jaco

Analog film subject melded with binary, inspired by original dialog, composited and cell-shaded amongst an array of unique discrete analog and digital processes. Each piece is uniquely printed only before being either sold or stored for exhibitions and/or display. Whilst most of my work is unique, I have a passion for the concept of affordable art, and as such developed A Brave New World as an initial offering. These four pieces were created specifically for metal printing and can be found for sale as metal plates over on Displate for a limited time.

A BRAVE NEW WORLD

Dark clouds dissipate as tumultuous mountains crack at shadowed seams. Cracks form chimneys, rifts to valleys, darkness recedes afraid of this new world. The Nothing has become nothing, and with it, I something.

FEAR HATE LOVE FAITH

A deep elemental connection ignites terror in us both. A terror that gives birth to mythical nouns and magical verbs, that plays out acts reserved solely for those you longed to imitate.

dependence

Dark embers glow, a still heart forged from starlight on the eve of judgement, a once Jovian forge now broken by the will of false gods.

ON LIFE

Lifetimes of isolated incarceration stimulate luculent channels seamlessly meshing emotion to thought to reality.
A matrix of lies. Isolated. Hopeless. Paranoid.
