My work is concerned with the materials and processes of landscape; both natural and fabricated. Land form, surface and space; water; vegetation; light; weather; built structures; habitats (for humans/wildlife); time & change are central elements of my practice as an artist and as a landscape architect.
The flat surface of canvas or paper is my chosen medium. Although rooted in ‘landscape’ as described above, my current artwork investigates ideas of representation and relational aspects of form and non-form; figure and ground; precision and spontaneity; absence and presence.
Methods of working involve deliberate actions (application of marks, tone and poured paint) and serendipity (allowing the materials to follow their own request). As with landscape, the resulting artwork is simply a record of its own making.
