Statement | 2016
My current work uses a variety of processes to document the dissolution of the farm which has been an important presence in my work for 20 years.
There are objects and spaces within agrarian structures and landscape that have been fixed all my life, that must now change. Previously I have drawn on the activities and processes, now it is these places, objects and memories that need to be held.
Walking the land worked for generations, objects that have been adapted and added to but that are now longer fit for purpose, all of which have a rich emotional resonance for me.
A need to archive something that is about to change demanded new processes so I have used both digital and camera-less photography, as well as printmaking techniques such as dry-point etching and monotype.
