Artist in Residence, 2006.
A response to the season of Autumn in the small village of Fiskars, Finland, paying particular attention to the natural earth tones of red, brown and the multiplicity nature of gold, being very grounding, yet, triumphant at the same time. This series of work was strongly influenced by wild-life inspired interior design, as much as it was by the woodlands of Fiskars. Overall, this series, is in ways, a record of the domestic-archaeology of the household, as it is a feral-archaeology of the woodland.
An Archaeology of the Unknown
An Archaeology of the Unknown is a series of on-going work charting an expedition from Sub-Arctic regions through to the Arctic and plays on archaeological tropes of excavation, stratigraphy and psychoanalysis. Journeying in the Arctic is cold and dark, yet illuminating, which I have expressed as a sensory, emotional and imaginal response to the landscape through sculptural-painting and palimpsest-like drawings.
Work exhibited at 'Points of View' exhibition show, at the Copper Smithy, Fiskars, Finland. 2007
