Based upon experiential journeys and interventions within the landscape above latitude 55 degrees north, my work is formed through research and is placed within the context of the transferred image. I have developed my digital practice from traditional methods of painting, printmaking and the multiple, via contextual study and practice led research. This work has evolved around the externalisation of constructs formed through walking and mapping using concepts described by Christine Christov-Bakargiev of “manipulating the real, and shifting between past, present, memory and reality”.
In my practice I examine the boundaries of the physical and temporal through a hybrid approach of input and output between digital and traditional methods. Within this examination the “surface” plays a critical part in the construct, going beyond merely a support or ground either digital or physical. Through layering, transparency, mix and remix the quality of the surface is intended to interact with each and all layers within the construct providing the mechanism for shifting and manipulating “past, present, memory and reality”. This process places me at the nucleus of a personal artistic construct, which is generative rather than responsive to my environment. I aim to promote the percipient’s engagement in the artist’s experience through both passive and proactive mechanisms.
