My interest in water and concern for the well-being of our seas, oceans, rivers and lakes has been growing over the last few years. It is now common knowledge that our oceans are under serious threat from pollution and over fishing. We once believed nature as infinite, but it has now become tangibly finite.

For this series, I focus and scan the surface of the water - whilst I am mesmerized by the constant and subtle changes in light, texture, lines, patterns and colours of the water.

I have chosen to represent these images in a circle within a square for the symbolic value of these two universal shapes, and as a means to evoke contrasting ideas such as the divine versus the human, light versus dark, the infinite versus the finite, the universal versus the individual.
