Man leaves traces of his existence on earth. These remnants are many times the result of our necessity to find and create shelter within the landscape. Historically understood as a place of living connection and encounter, these works explore the landscape as the place we inhabit, a place that celebrates the spirit of communal life.
My work is concerned with the here and now, paying special attention to the specifics of ‘place’: mans connection to the land, belonging, being from somewhere, and ultimately one of the basic human needs – shelter.
Shelter understood at an intimate level rather than a panoramic one. Shelter as a sanctuary from society, a place from where to honour the wider world, a place that represents and reflects the infinitesimal value of human life within the immensity of natural history.
