‘Are We Not A Garden’
a series of works looking at our relationships with nature
My work has recently shifted from painting landscapes to looking at landscape as a vessel that posses visual questions and suggests narrative.
This new work is process driven.
There is minimal preliminary planning involved.
Rather the paintings more or less paint themselves.
The process is one of mapping place through constructing layered passages of mark-making and imaging, of revealing and concealing, of tagging objects and unveiling dialogues.
The intention is to create an ambiguous, immersive environment that promotes a discussion with the viewer.
