Artist statement


My work utilizes the printmaking process as a means of rendering an experience of place, a site or location close to my personal sensibility. I combine intimate and distant perspectives of landscape in my work as a response to a personal interaction with a familiar environment. Such connections are integral to the understanding of place and inspire my further engagement with the landscape. I utilize the landscape as an analogy for deeper interpretations of the human spirit and nature; to reflect on our relationships with each other, and how we interact, communicate and mark our time within the landscape.

These prints reference the notion of the ‘oblique’ in the landscape. Using a gradient or ‘lean in nature’ as a metaphor for lack of judgment or vision in the management of our landscape, and question its future balance.
