Rewilding

My output is firmly rooted in our current epoch, which is suggested to be called the Anthropocene, the age of man - because we have had such a significant impact on the planet, it will be recorded in geological history.

The Rewilding series use depictions of the city as a metaphor for everything humans have had an impact on. Farmland, fishing, reservoirs, managed forests, mines or pollution - there is almost nowhere on Earth that has not seen some level of impact by humans. Even uninhabited places are being negatively affected by pollution and global heating.

There’s a movement called ‘Rewilding’, which seeks to reestablish the dominance of nature as an antidote to the effects of the Anthropocene. The paintings focus on this movement. The surfaces are made up of colour and chaos. The marks represent the resurgence of nature and how it is intertwined with people, culture, religion, philosophies and technologies. All these great things we have created as a species existing in a magnificently rich, chaotic and above all sustainable ecosystem
