My practice engages with a rapport with places through painting. I research the human histories of places and work on site and in the studio. I am interested in places where human and non-human elements express one another and my material process is informed by this reciprocity.
My approach is rooted in the Western tradition of landscape painting but aims to expand on that narrative by engaging with place with an attitude of receptivity and service. I work in this historic language to describe a contemporary experience of nature that is informed by discourses about decolonization, phenomenology, ecosystems and a singular concept of human|nature.
