My current practice that reconfigures contemporary and historical reference from rural Norfolk aims to explore the changing identity of a landscape. The work often utilises a low-fi, cut and paste aesthetic to evoke the hi-tech and futuristic. Familiar county icons including Oak trees and cumulus clouds as well as the generic architecture of new estates are alluded to through angular, sculptural forms. These are collaged in uneasy accumulations that reveal series of fractured vistas and motifs. Shot through with brittle materiality and bold palette the assemblages aim to communicate a brooding mood of anticipation. I am also interested in how historical forms emerge and reappear in new incarnations. A recent piece Untitled (Green man room for an old future) includes a representation of the Green Man as part of an architectural, futuristic structure.
