I work with paper, cutting intricate patterns and shapes to exploit the qualities of the material and create delicate, complex layers full of movement and depth.
The core of this body of work is a fascination with pattern and colour in the landscape and natural world on a macro and micro scale. Satellite imagery reveals dramatic forms and unexpected colours in the landscape, and micro images of plants and natural objects often reveal surprisingly similar structures.
I am especially interested in forms within the landscape created both by natural forces, such as flowing water, and human exploits like mining and farming; the shaping of our landscape over time.
The architectural series explores structure and light, focusing on traditional architecture as well as contemporary structures. By exploiting the qualities of cut and layered paper, the fall of light becomes central to the work and helps define the image.
