Lee Day, Water Abstraction

Exhibition Dates: January 29 – February 25, 2021

Lockdown, I can’t continue work on my current project.
Frustrated, angry, cooped up in my office. Obsessively working on… Whatever.
It’s been pouring rain for hours, days, when the sun breaks through. 

I go into the stream out back to shoot and cleanse my mind, just do something other than obsess. The water is roaring – in full flood. Light pierces down through cracks in the high canopy picking out bits of the torrent for me to work with. 

There is a confusion and power in these images which resonates with the storm raging in our midst.
