I make art as a way of investigating relationships between our built and natural environment e.g. Why do we live where/how we do? What is/should/could be our relationship with our environment. How have these attitudes changed over time?
My current multi-layered digital prints investigate this conflicted connection with the natural environment by taking elements of our built environment (“Victorian” cast iron ornamentation) and interfacing it with images from the natural landscape.
The form is a section of the Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens’ 1878 cast iron gate and the flora is primarily from the Mount Field national park.
