In my practice, I try to evoke my personal memory of a place, by creating my own unique interpretation of the ‘landscape’. My work so far is a representation of how the memory of individual landscapes can become unclear over time, this results in the landscapes not just being one solitary image, but rather one consisting of multiple layers and complexities. In my practice I explore a variety of mediums to represent this, my primary medium has been painting and collage.
Using paint has allowed me to experiment with mark-making, tone, the thickness of paint and composition. The collage element of my practice allows me to create ambiguous images, ones that push and pull between layers, creating a complex composition.
