Photography and Digital Art are Gareth’s artistic releases. Gareth has been able to bring his imagination, vision and inquisitive mind to visual life following a successful career as a forensic scientist.
Gareth’s art mostly explores bold abstracts or unique perspectives that are created from his original photographs or digital art pieces. Gareth uses both monochromatic and colour perspectives in final images, as he believes they evoke quite different emotions in viewers. By looking to connect images to viewers and in these uneasy times, Gareth wants to balance life. He wants to present moments of beauty, quiet joy or intrigue in balance with the need to draw attention to important issues.
Everyone needs a break from the unending negative news all around the world and Gareth attempts to give people a breather from the stress of today’s world. Whilst still bringing difficult issues into his art, like climate change and species extinction, Gareth is convinced that putting life in balance is the critical issue facing the world today. He hopes his art helps to heal this disparate world through creative expressions, thoughtful moments and visual enjoyment or challenge.
Gareth never says no to an image, be it traditional or not, be it something he has created or captured, but simply because it shouts out to him "Look at me". He’s photographing the world with all its wonders and creations, big and small, that simply make him stop and look, or think, or smile, or feel and then he puts his take on it.
Gareth’s images are that gift - a moment to look, think, smile or feel whatever the image calls up in you. His curiosity fuels the exploration of the world and, from that abstract nature, urban and imaginative images arise. He believes that whenever viewers purchase or comment on images, they connect with him. Often that connection is the breather he wants to provide. He is touching people, reaching them with his images and that is what inspires him.
Gareth’s art can be found in private collections in Canada and around the world in places such as Brazil, England, France, Chile, Turkey, Australia and Slovakia.
