“The exchange between terrain, climate, temperature and the elements is constant and transforming by the moment. My work is an exploration of the effects of atmospheric conditions on land, water and the resulting patina of time. These elements inform the work and at times determine the subject matter. There is an excavation and layering process that conceals and reveals visual information, each layer informing the next. Delicate surface markings (works on panel) and textures from salvaged boards (relief prints) are a visual record of this process. Subject matter is not predetermined, it is intuitive and emerges as the work develops.”
