The central themes of my work explore dreamlike notions of transition and transformation that link to both a physical and psychological experience of place and belonging.
We are creatures of our environment, shaped by climate and geology, in transit from moment to moment adapting to the demands of our immediate surroundings. Limited by our vision at any one moment we only know what we can see and feel. Events beyond our vision are anecdotal and can only be imagined. We are alone but vulnerable to a collective unconsciousness, that causes constant tiny shifts in our constructed axis of reality.
My recent paintings are ’emblems of hope’, a meditation on human extinction exploring imaginary landscapes of post human habitation.
