The processes that form the landscape are made up of many iterations of simple, non-complex incidents; rain falling, wind blowing – repeated many, many times. These interact with the pre-existing factors (such as the type of rock) to create the complex forms of the landscape.
In this series of work, I draw many iterations of simple lines that respond to pre-existing factors like the texture and flaws in paper, or clots in the ink. Over the course of drawing through these iterations, forms analogous to landscapes arise. Instead of responding to the winds and rains of the physical world, the drawn landscapes emerge as perhaps alien landscapes, recognisable yet strange. The landscapes are products of the forces that exist in my studio, not only subject to the conditions of the materials, but also subject to the forces of the artist’s hand and focus.
