Art Description

Drawing: Charcoal on Paper.

Drawing: Charcoal on Paper.

The seed pods of Australia have become a central theme in my work. Not only do they house and protect the multitude of new life, they also symbolise nature’s continuous renewal and growth. Our natural world is an endless flow of life coming into form, moving through form and leaving form.

Through a process of removal, and clear human intervention upon the seed pods, I am showing the unfathomable complexity and fractal geometry that exists with all forms in nature.

These drawings are further abstracted in monochrome and become both familiar and unfamiliar to us. Like breaking open a rock to find a precious gem within we are gifted an insight into the hidden depths of the natural world.

Both my sculptural and two-dimensional practice are investigations into the timeless and formless intelligence within nature, the ghost in the machine. No matter what is removed there will always be another layer of truth waiting to be revealed.
