I work between drawing and painting to create compositions in which shadowy, biomorphic figures and delicate, foliated fragments mingle. While at Banff Centre, I created this series of new drawings, and 3D modelled sculptures derived from them. These works make reference to a history of discourses around constructing the ‘natural’ world; bodies, nature, environment and the tangled strings which often bind them together.
