Nigel Williams Member Since May 2011 Artist Statement After a long professional career in computing, automotive design, animation, photography and multimedia, I have finally decided to let loose some of my personal style of imagery. Throughout my life I have endured being one of those truly mixed-up left-brain and right-brain people, with interests in everything, but especially art, travel, transport, industrial & military archaeology, photography and animation - always being in the middle, equally comfortable in both the art camp and the technical camp, and able to communicate sensitively with both, but constantly bouncing between the two.
I've always photographed details. The reason? I enjoy the abstraction of cutting a set of lines, a piece of geometry, a small piece of craftsmanship, or a little of nature's patterns, out of a scene, to see what emerges - in most cases, something completely new and completely unrelated to its origin. So the next logical step, exemplified in some of my kaleidoscopic images, is to start replicating those details and re-assembling them, in some sort of order, again to see what emerges. And what emerges is startling: the patterns I saw when I abstracted those details combine to form completely new and exciting patterns, new scenes, new objects and new worlds, which in no way would have been envisaged by viewing the original scene.
