I interpret landscapes through the exploration of material. I focus on rugged coastlines, looking at erosion as a spectacle of discovery and generation of form, revealing a sense of the history and movement of a place. The work is produced using my ‘Lost Ice Process.’ I use salt to sculpt ice as a one-off ephemeral model from which to take a direct cast. The textures this provides, and the transient nature of the creative process, reflect the erosion and sense of time I want to represent in the landscape.
