Landscape Subdivision Series 2006 - 2019
Living adjacent to Goldie Bush, Muriwai, Auckland in the Waitakere Ranges my love and concern for our marginalised forested spaces seeks expression in this series. Referencing early settler and the current ubiquitous subdivision and land abuse of subdivide, cut, burn, bulldoze and lay bare for farm and lifestyle, I have used a montage grid format to underscore the continuing dissection of the land. In these intense works I attempt to offer the viewer a variety of ways to read the landscape, to discover beauty or desolation, a grand or an intimate view. I continue to explore new ways of presenting my ideas...Poems arise and often accompany a body of work.
