Imaginary seascape

If you look at some things in a particular way, and use your imagination, they can appear to be a very different subject matter to their actual reality. I call this sort of thing accidental art or found art but the phenomenon is also known as a simulacrum. In this series of photographs I captured some combinations of shapes and colours that reminded me of seascapes or coastal scenes, progressing to increasingly colourful abstract forms.

This image gave rise to thoughts of jagged rocky promontories along the coast.- maybe even a ruined castle  – in the way that many old Scottish fortified dwellings perch on the rocks of islands and cliff edges (such as Eilean Donan in Skye or Dunnottar in Aberdeen) .
