For the past few years I have focused on work about our landscape. The work has primarily taken the form of watercolours based on images of the trees in the landscape seen from the window of an airplane.
The trees are used to show sections of undeveloped land which make patterns of development, the use of a single colour focuses on form, these patterns change from culture to culture and the distance describes our disconnect.
The more visceral motivation of the work is to create a beautiful image that functions in the tradition of sublime landscape paintings.
And, as always, I am trying to create a moment of detachment by providing the beauty of this hostile environment by looking down from far far away.
