Art has the power to connect us to a region of immaterial space.  It is a window, a conduit through which we see the world more clearly.

Art can raise awareness.

Art is freedom to imagine and is powerful.

What is landscape? My work is an investigation into the meaning of landscape. I use a mixture of materials to explore the language abstraction to discover things hard to grasp and hard to define.

I think of landscapes as a region of space neither here nor there, internal and external, at once close and yet far away. An environment is a region that makes up both our internal space and external space: mutable landscapes with indivisible boundaries exerting invisible influences as our connection to nature.

I also try to imagine the landscape of the future, where we will have lost so much through environmental change, or landscapes on other worlds where we might only have an inhospitable environment in common. I paint these feelings and ideas as abstract compositions that evoke lost spaces through layering the paint to cover up previous details.

Recently I've been combining landscape photography and sculptural interventions with old photographs to highlight a separation between the past and present through two separate spaces. The content of these photos is important to create a personal connection and I hope that the work triggers a more general conversation about our connection to the environment.
