‘Wild Feathers in a Wild Landscape’ Sculpture, painting and artist moving image .
This ancient land is rich in Iron and history , Beauty and wildlife , Iron and wool, Indigo and water magic and healing .
Today the landscape has changed when industry took its place and leaves a mark , round about and motorways take over the river ways. The pouring of concrete with metal shed, out of town shopping sprawling with more plastic . Creating what Rem Koolhaas calls “junkspace and the displacement of place”. I morn the loss of nature. The landscape breaking. The layers of time.
My presentation explores the deep connections of ancient landscape and the current destruction of the landscape over time. As James Hillman says “we need to mourn the loss of landscape” , through ritual and grieving with our voice/vision . Through the process of cast iron, indigo and its history. I have research in subjects that include ,architecture, archeology, ecology, industry ,textiles, materials, film, psychology, fine art, sculpture, performance that not only informs my work/practice but makes me a better human being. Because of the greater insights inter-disciplinarily artist have I believe we can create a new pictorial language. As artist we are trained in a culture of experimentation .
