My work explores notions of place, perception and experience, suggesting the potential for a broader landscape and invites viewers to examine their relationships with each other and the world we share. The works are both abstract and familiar and in a state of constant change as is the land they represent.
I have always held a fascination for maps and globes and these pieces are an expression of that passion.
The hemispheres are all hand made from spun steel and painted in automotive paint. The land masses are created in gilded copper leaf and then patinaed, a skill learned as an apprentice signwriter 30 years ago.
Each piece is intended to change over time and are unique in their look and behaviour. The artworks will alter its appearance based on the environment it is hung.
