ABOUT THE ARTIST:
“My practice is based upon mankind’s relationship with the landscape.
Initially this idea was inspired by working in a granite factory; etching ornaments onto the granite made me think about us and the land, layers, minerals, texture and quarrying.
Robert MacFarlane’s book ‘The Wild Places’ describes transitory happenings in the wild and his beautiful imagery lead me to investigate inner and outer landscapes, questioning how the land is perceived to not just humans but wildlife and nature too. My practice evolves around the idea of seeing the world and trying to fathom it.
Through unusual methods and manipulation of materials, I create landscapes or dreamscapes which are representative of our imagination, attributing personal human meanings to the fleeting aspects of nature that breathes alongside us. The distinction between what is alive and inanimate becomes blurred.
My paintings invite the viewer to imagine deeper into the water in an attempt to visualise what it sees; looking back up at the trees as they peer down into it – this is how nature must see itself.”
