My practice is specifically engaged with the human relationship to the landscape and how we shape and modify it to our own needs. Building glass and steel structures that reflect the sky or fields of wheat row after row, there is a fundamental human desire to shape our environment.
Working with Sculpture, Installation, Photography, Collage and Painting I have established an intimate vocabulary of materiality and process. But the current work is painting and coalesces all my interests into fractured archaic forms – that have been described like animal pelts, shattered stained glass windows and petrified life forms.
A typical studio day could include walking my dog along the coast, finding a headless snake still wriggling, going to the supermarket, using a computer / Smartphone and looking into the hedgerow seeing a lizard basking on a discarded can of coke.
I enjoy observing these sometimes poetic, sometimes disturbing moments because it enables me to gain internal perspectives and process the fundamental force of nature: Creation and Destruction, but through my own lens of contemporary experience.
