The historical narrative of the local site I’m working on connects the geology of the land with the presence of absence – a distinct sense of what has gone before and what remains; a recurring theme in my pursuit of heterotopian emplacements sometimes apparent in the ruined landscape. A continued presence in the studios has enabled further practice research using less familiar print mediums such a stone lithography. I am indebted to the skill and patience of the talented artist printmakers at ArtLab Contemporary Studios as I learn to navigate new techniques and equipment.
Seeking out sites of heterotopia in the common landscape; at once familiar but set aside or transitory, disturbing what surrounds them. Re-imagined through analogue photography, sound, projection and printmaking.
