Artist Statement

The paintings and models encompass the idea of ‘north’ and relates to crossovers or connections between that which is imagined and real.

They are informed by my own recent experiences and ‘visions’ of my own early childhood within northern environments. I might make the work in an attempt to re-encounter or recover aspects of northern landscape as an act of preservation or re-enactment of my experiences within them.

My work also explores ideas to do with isolation and remote places, and perhaps investigates a sense of existence.
