John Histed LRPS
Statement of Intent for ARPS Panel - Assessment Date 5 March 2019
My approach comes from my natural leanings and working background. During my working life, I gained great emotional and intellectual satisfaction from identifying patterns which underly apparently tangled business processes and using them to define computer systems. I find the same satisfaction in identifying the forms, shapes and patterns that interested me on the trunks and limbs of trees in Western Europe and Southern Africa. Many of the images show perceptual ambiguity resembling a whole range of other objects from body parts to aerial photographs.
