Artist Statement

My practice is a response to the degradation of the cultural and natural landscapes that I have encountered during  my travels throughout the world.  The world is undergoing a process of radical globalisation and once vibrant and unique cultures are being subsumed by a global culture which is dominated by ubiquitous corporate brands.  Traditional cultures are characterised by shapes and colours that combine to give them a distinct visual identity. 

Using photography and traditional printing processes I make  images that have been deconstructed in order to examine what it is that makes these cultural landscapes unique.  Colours and shapes are simplified and sometimes exaggerated in order to discover the essence of the culture that created them.  These same shapes and colours can then be isolated and removed from their original context to create abstract images that retain the vibrancy of the landscape from which they came.
