As with most of my work these images are the result of a kind of research project around the edges of something I’m interested in, something that speaks to me. In this case, it is these diving figures, or are they falling? We may never know. As with most of my work, they feel like they are from another time…I associate them with childhood memories of long summer afternoons at a local swimming club. At times they feel lonely and isolated, or misplaced as most recollections do. Did I dream this?

There is also a sense of release with some of the figures feeling like someone jumping off a cliff or a very high place. Thus, a leap of faith, a taking a risk, or perhaps another kind of desperate act. - Tom Judd
