My work is about reconciling and playing with the tension between man-made and natural elements of life. The workings of the city can exacerbate a sense of extremes that play out on a personal, community, systemic and global scale. I look to patterns in nature on a macro and micro scale to comprehend the imbalances in our human systems and their state of flux.
I work with this tension to negotiate moments of reconciliation. I draw on organic and geometric influences understanding that they carry knowledge of cycles, rhythms and patterns. In turn this brings a connection to the history of the land and culture (both 'traditional' and contemporary). I look at how this is recorded, interpreted, experienced and expressed through natural and man-made phenomena. I'm engaged with the interplay of long and short cycles and the experience of time.
Through this exploration duality falls away and it becomes clear that things are much more fluid and expansive than they first appear. We are all powerfully connected.
