T5 ART

“Everyone discusses my art and pretends to understand, as if it were necessary to understand, when it is simply necessary to love “

(Calude Monet).

“T5 Art Series” (a series of more than 70 images) is part of the mobile phone photography instagram project that consists of 2 additional series, “Today’s Green Field” and “Road Art”.

The photographs for this series have all been taken in and around  London Heathrow’s Airport Terminal 5.

For this series, the ground and sky, as practical opposites, have become the focus of my attention, as I find myself often looking to a very visually rich floor or a busy Heathrow sky.

As the aircrafts land and take off, barbed wire cutting across the sky contrast too with the idea of freedom often associated with flight and  wide open free skies. And while the luminosity and contrasting shadows of Terminal 5  offer me a rich visual playground to feast on, in this series I pay more attention to the beauty contained within those aspects that are often considered of no real value beyond their practical functionality.

There is so much going on at Heathrow’s Terminal 5 that few manage to step out and really look around, up or down, and see in a different manner…And that is precisely the driving intention behind T5 Art, to simply offer a different way of looking!

As I say in relation to the Road Art Series, T5 Art also plays with the relativity of meaning, context and content, and attempts to highlight the absolute and universal within our surroundings inherent beauty where too often seems to go unnoticed.
