My practice engages with a rapport with places through painting. I research the human histories of places, explore, 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 and mutual agency.
This practice is rooted in a 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.
