christopher bucklow

i adore the work of Christopher Bucklow particularly his Guest series - quite literally like visitors from outer space who come bathed it starlight. Christopher Bucklow is a British artist best known for his paintings and photography who has spoken in interviews of his interest in nature, the cosmos and the exploration of consciousness and the unconscious and these themes clearly influence his style.  the Guest series are a formed using sunlight (a kind of pinhole photography) which he achieves by making silhouettes on aluminium foil and using a home-made camera.  the differing shades and sparkles depend on the levels of sunlight - creating this otherworldy appearance.  stunning....oh how i wish one day i could own one.
