Alex Keogh

Statement

My work is a study of water and its behaviour. In particular I have been drawn to the vibrations and movements that we can create within a body of water. Carrying out experiments with water, light and sound allows me to explore the range of effects we can have on a body of water. Recording and documenting the different shapes, patterns, reflections and refractions became an integral part of my work.
My work is greatly influenced by physics which inspired me to explore the experimental processes that are possible within the darkroom. The idea of capturing a glimpse of the various structural forms and patterns that liquid can embody is something that became an important part of my practice as I have always been interested in the edges of perception. Through a combination of experimenting in the darkroom and print I am able to capture those forms and bring them to life.
