Subtle Topographies

The fluid shapes and marks which emerge and coalesce in my recent works relate to the fluidity of memory and our perception of places.

In addition to referencing the presence of the self, they also suggest vast geological formations, the passage of time, sedimentary accumulation and overlay, and meaning lost and found in form. The playful and intuitive coupling of visual gestures towards a human presence and geography can be seen as a metaphor for the dialogue between the means of production and the physical and imagined places which the work draws on.

Considerations about the physical and material properties of liquid pigment and woollen yarn, as well as the emotive qualities of colour, drive the alchemical transformations in these works. Pigment pools and woven landforms collide and shift, creating subtle topographies, which echo a particular landscape and light as well as a longing for them.
