Artist Creative Process
I write, draw, paint, draft, and fabricate in a wholistic philosophical practice of art that I have developed throughout my experiences.
I use steel and construction materials to express my feelings. My father was a steel fabricator, and I worked in his workshop from 14, my grandfather, a concreter. I feel at home in the construction world but also distant from the blue-collar culture that surrounds it.
Artwork Description
After sitting and sketching the great mythical, iconic tree, the Australian Red Cedar in the hinterlands of Mullum I pondered the growths on it and the changed growths around it, it’s relationship with the forest. This once ubiquitous Northern New South Wales timber has been cut down almost to the point of eradication in the first 150 years since white colonisation. This human intervention in nature is the catalyst for my work. How we interact, interrupt and interpret nature, determines the prisms through which we view the world and ourselves.
