Fragments of reality

 

Through photographing the woodlands surrounding her home extensively Soraya began to see metaphors for life and personal experiences. However the complexity of translating these ideas to the viewer has lead her to simplify the imagery toward abstraction. By pulling out interesting forms in the photographs the shapes become ambigeous, they allude to their origins but are creating new landscapes / worlds  in which colour and form are the dominating elements.

 

Phototransfer techniques which breakdown the original photographic image are overlaid in some of the work, by re-printing the transfer as a duo-tone litho print it adds to textual quality back into picture, alluding to it’s origin and a sentiment of dreams or memory, two themes which recur throughout Schofield’s practise. The extraction of these forms moves the work away from the metaphorical to the abstract, in which the viewer can interuprate the imagery without literal dictation and be lead by there own experiences.
