Now where are we? As exiles we negotiate our strange surroundings by drawing on all our intuition and analytical powers while struggling forward with feelings of longing in the search for belonging. My arts practice explores these themes through the medium of abstracted ‘landscapes’ and a painting process that prioritizes improvisation and ambiguity to achieve results which aim to inspire curiosity and contemplation.
Landscape elements such as nature versus the built environment are expressed ambiguously through the interplay of various colours and geometries. Like a wandering exile armed only with a paintbrush I create the strange new landscape of my mind as I traverse it every now and then pausing to reflect … now where are we?
