“Before it can ever be the repose for the senses, landscape is the work of the mind. Its scenery is built up as much from strata of memory as from layers of rock.”
- Simon Schama
My work uses the external landscape to explore the cartographies of the mind. My drawings, photographs and objects not only respond to my own inability to understand my personal psychology, but to the complex and overstimulating world in which I find myself. At the same time, my work is both a form of meditation and a type of escapism, creating a strange, ethereal world into which I hope to also transport the viewer. Ultimately, like an archaeologist, I hope to gradually chip away at the strata of memories held by the places we occupy. My work may seem to make spatial sense initially, but closer observation may, like a frayed thread, unravel the consistency of logic of these dream landscapes.
