"The great God Pan is dead. Pan, God of Panic. The sudden awareness that everything is alive and significant."
- William S Burroughs
I'm interested in making work about liminal states, animal consciousness, wilderness and memory.
When you walk up a hill, you are standing on a living organism. The countless blades of grass beneath your feet, the insects in the earth - these are alive.
Anthropocentrism is the idea that humanity is above nature. We have lost something we desperately need to get back.
I have tried painting hidden figures and creatures that you can't quite see and therefore seem mysterious and wild, part of a world you can't quite reach. My paintings have become quite dark because darkness is associated with dreamlike states of consciousness. I'm trying to create an atmosphere of primordial consciousness and memory.
