Where are we? 2018, oil on canvas

I am currently working on a project about relationships -physical, emotional and temporal. It began with my consideration of my relationship to the landscape surrounding the house where I grew up, a place I have known my whole life and will soon be leaving.

Since April 2018 a pair of communication towers, their relationship to each other and to the landscape surrounding, became the focus of my observation on daily walks in the area. In particular I am interested by how they appear to change depending on my perspective. These changes are documented through plein air painting, drawing and photography.

Through this sustained process of observation I have contemplated all of my close relationships: with other people; myself; and this place. Subsequently the information gathered, these artworks, are being used as a starting point for a series of original prints.
