Print

Today I was working in the print studio experimenting with textures and working on a larger scale. I used my 100 images to create a large print using abstract shapes and textures to give a ‘natural’ and wild atmosphere.

After printing this image, I then began experimenting with ways to corrupt the free flowing textures and shapes within the print to represent industrialisation and how it conflicts with nature. Using geometric shapes and lines, it created physical borders within the print that seemed unnatural which was what I was intending to do. I would like to continue this further by looking into how to represent nature in a more powerful yet subtle way.

I am a landscape painter who enjoys spending free time exploring and wandering through natural landscapes, understanding that the space I occupy in this world is tiny and temporary. The aim of my paintings is to evoke the same sense of wonder in the viewer that I experience while on my travels and to ignite the realisation that compared to our surroundings, we are miniscule and blend in, we are not above, nor do we have any higher importance than any other being or thing on this planet. My large oil paintings are designed to be displayed outdoors after being inspired by Katherine Grosse in the Venice Biennale, making them appear small in their surroundings, much like the people in them and the people viewing them. However, my zines and watercolours require more attention, showing that even smaller details contain whole worlds and landscapes of their own. Depending on our own experiences we see the prints differently. The text along with the images encourage the viewer to see the same landscape I see.
