The tangle of my surrounding landscape and its plethora of resources has always been one of my main sources of inspiration, as well as the source of the sustainable, eco-friendly materials I use. Nature provides so much to capture, examine and test. In more recent works, and in this current body of work, I have focused on the illuminating force of light in nature contrasted with the absence of light. Where there is light, there is often a shadow or darkness, and it is this dichotomy and movement that I have explored on panel. Again, I have utilized gold to convey light but this time, I have focused my attention to see how reduced and deconstructed I can reach in interpreting the landscape. Each piece is an example of the use of natural materials from shoe polish to natural earth paints and solvents, which connects the works to the concept that these materials are all part of the earth and back to the earth they will return.
