“A landscape here, long before we ever dreamed”
Travelling, mainly on foot, through landscapes and countries from as far north as the Arctic Circle to as far south as Southern Africa, this life has been like my practice: peripatetic. An exploring of terrain and environment. Scraping back and re-layering through text and image, sensing a vastness of time elapsed over an ever-changing horizon. A questioning of power and ownership, trespassing physically as well as pictorially over established territories. A flux where the alchemy of layers becomes deep within the horizon edge line. These are vulnerable moments, challenging rhythms and change. Like a labourer toiling on the land, the work is hidden once the yield is realised. The ordinariness of a new place, sometimes domestic, frugal, austere, with even a beat of nostalgia. These journeys bring with them a sense of longing, melancholy and memory. Trying to understand the expansiveness and reasoning in creating a palimpsest of landscape, the stories are hidden within.
