[note the small dimensions of this artwork]

small collage constructed from recycled & painted paper and card fragments, seeking intricate or evocative rural elements, abstracted and distilled from cross-country commutes to a day job: glimpses of fortress farms, scaffolding towers, country piles, black stacks, steely barns – travelling between the picturesque, the industrial and the mundane, the meditative process of collage has become symbolic of an interior journey, from privilege to frugality, the art of making it ‘home’ again…*

*text adapted from an exhibition catalogue statement (July 2016).

why this work? because it represents struggle and fortitude [resilience, endurance, on the road, etc].
