Influenced by the concept of the Anthropocene, I create artwork with the intention of communicating the degenerative effects on the biosphere as a result of the ‘Great Acceleration’ in human activity. Concerned with both concept and form, my work is both two and three dimensional. In line with my subjective interests my practice uses reclaimed materials for sculpting.
Influenced by the photographic documentation used by land artists such as Richard Long, and Michael Heizer, I employ photography in order to reflect on political developments and social changes taking place in our current epoch.
