Statement
Nature is the beautiful organism that dictates our world. It creates and destroys, continually fighting to revert back to the primal landscape it once was.
Natures palate exercises its techniques, attacking surfaces irrespective of composition and structure. The elements take control stripping back surface makeup, to an ever changing canvas of metaphoric shapes.
It can be seen in the aftermath of a volcanic eruption; corroding cliff faces, oxidizing metals or in the mere cracks of the pavement beneath our feet . Whether natural or man-made, exposed surfaces are governed by the elements.
Using a series of multi-media layers, oils and binding resins builds a creation of infused layers. Providing a wealth of textural explorations which express intricate compositions and the aesthetics of my inspiration.
