Artist statement: ‘Slip’ is a photograph of a pair of trousers, socks and shoes. Most likely the photograph was taken when there were legs inside the trousers and feet inside the shoes. The probable legs are crossed as though the probable person is standing relaxed, confident, sure of themselves. An arch of gold chain hangs from the inside of the frame. A thin veneer – coquettish – not really covering but inviting the eyes in. Desire is inbuilt into photography. The desire to have, to capture, to take, to have power over – but it is a veneer.
‘Slip’ is a continuation of my interest in the veneer of photography. A surface that is scratched only reveals more surface.
