Artist Statement

I was inspired to create this image ‘Shard’ after a holiday we took in Egypt. After too many hours flying, my breath was taken away as we came down to land and I noticed the distinctly different atmosphere Egypt had compared to my native New Zealand. There was an incredible rose hue over the entire city, little contrast and a haze everywhere. This continued on ground, it was a softness and warmth that was quite unfamiliar.

I was in awe as I got to see the many great monuments I had long imagined during our visit in constant wonder as to how and why everything was so large. On arriving home I had a desire to make an image that captured that rosy romantic haze Egypt had impressed upon me with the monumentally confusing size of their structures. The monolith in ‘Shard’ is deceptive. It looks colossal, but is actually just a small fragment of stone. It sits upon a bed of peachy sand with no reference points to determine its location or size, similar to the way the mysteries of Egypt impacted my memory.
