Artist Statement

I am a multi-disciplinary artist based in the Midlands UK, with a focus in alternative photography techniques, collage, and installation. My practice considers themes of landscape, domesticity, and identity. I am interested in accessible and plant based development methods, and I frequently employ material to mirror concept in my art.

 

In my latest WIP in 2022, I want to explore the idea of grandeur in a domestic setting. I have been thinking about how landscape and domesticity have been portrayed as separate subjects in photography, and I would like to combine the two.

 

Presenting parallels between vast landscapes and ordinary household items I will experiment with perspective and scale. I have frequently found myself photographing large landscapes and then returning home to develop them using household items! Our experience of lockdown has shown that people are craving vast open spaces after being constrained at home.

I plan to investigate the notion of grandeur and what it implies in a residential setting, with the objective of recreating the awe of a traditional landscape shot indoors.
