‘Needle’ is an abstract painting created in a medium I understand well, that of the moving image. It also incorporates other elements that I like to use such as sound, as well as layering the sounds like layers of paint.
The idea behind Needle is seeing the world differently when affected by grief or a similar major emotional upheaval.
Though many people may experience the same loss, the pain experienced by this loss is completely individual and personal, sometimes secret in the amount of damage caused to the person feeling it.
I make films for various reasons; sometimes to tell a story, other times to relieve, express and explore my own anger or difficulty communicating with other people. Feelings of isolation and communication difficulties are common themes in my work.
