Statement

I have long been fascinated with the vast landscape hidden in the ground beneath our feet.  I am drawn to the places where these hidden secrets are revealed to us at the surface, imagining the mechanisms and events that formed them.  Since the beginning of time, we have been motivated to find and utilise the resources and treasures hidden within.

This body of work is an exploration of our connection to place and how that connection influences the way that we inhabit the land.  It is my belief that the world was created and resourced for us to enjoy and we have been given charge as Caretakers.  I’m interested in how we fulfil that role.  There is a tension between mankind's innate creativity - which drives us to make ever increasing demands on resources - and our role as caretakers.

“Caretakers” seeks to explore this tension and pose the question; Where is the balance to be found?
