A Deeper Land

Description

‘A Deeper Land’ is a continuing series of paintings that evoke a disappearing or vanished world. Based on dioramas constructed from cement, discarded material and torn scraps of corrugated cardboard, these works explore the ruin as trope in the Romantic tradition of landscape art. The use of waste and building materials are here used to further develop the metaphor of impermanence, of atrophy and collapse, and to engage with current discourses of the Anthropocene.
