I have long been interested in nature imagery as some kind of odd illustration of our own human nature. What we feel is limitless and expansive, we want to own; where we find beauty, we try to ascribe purpose. Whether devastated from war, ecological upheaval or simply our own use, the landscape maps our histories and hopes.
In this series, with a nod to the illusionary potential of drawing itself, perspectives, near and far are deliberately skewed. Using landscapes as a foil, scenes of natural beauty are juxtaposed against references to the environment.
