I am a unorthodox cartographer. My maps manifest form in canvas and clay.
The work does not relate to the traditional topography you may observe on an ordnance survey map. Painter and writer Etel Adnan said that “maps are not about shapes but about energies flowing in and out of places”. My maps are models of concision; a myriad of energies, history and detail maintained through line, colour and form.
My practice is driven by the process of excavating colour from land. Just as the Impressionists went out to practice their painting en plein air, I go on field trips to collect data for my work. Pigments are obtained from earth and foraged plants then processed in the studio to produce enriched hues. Frottage elements of the landscape are also taken using driftwood charcoal, tracing the land through process-led drawing.
The paintings are thought of as maps or fields of view. Panels are hand-stitched together to create work that reflects on time and environment, conveying a unique sense of place. The work echos both the ephemeral and permanent elements of landscape, using seasonal materials such as oak galls in conjunction with mineral earth samples that exist year-round.
The maps are indeterminate of their geographic location but nonetheless, an insistent sort of fact.
