From the artist

My practice reinterprets notions of what constitutes landscape painting, both within an art history context and a contemporary social context. My intention is to reflect upon the contradiction between our inherent connection to the natural world and continual distancing from it. My work aims to convey ideas of nature, alchemy and creation by operating on one level as a landscape and on another as an abstraction.
