Artist Statement

From the series 'Texture / Contexture'

In the same way that all living creatures are different, our home planet Earth has many characteristic qualities which make it individual and unique. These elements of the natural world we evolved alongside for millennia, such as stone, wood and moss coexist with concrete, ceramic and metal; the results of humanity’s eventual technological advancement. These many and often juxtaposed elements continuously surround us to form our past, present and future; They are the interwoven tapestry that makes our environment the diverse, complicated and tactile wonder that it is.

As an ever growing percentage of humanity enjoys international travel, collectively venturing further at an ever increasing frequency, in the minds of many, the Earth’s ‘vastness’ is shrinking. The growing social expectation for the traveller to continually venture further and more often, to ‘collect’ a list of destinations and experiences for their own sake, has taken focus away from appreciating the details of what is there to be observed.

Texture / Contexture uses this idea at its core. This new series draws together a 3-channel video installation and a collection of 36 inexorably detailed, site-specific landscapes that have been carefully sourced from various geographical locations. Gathering imagery from Australia, New Zealand, Micronesia, Japan, Continental Europe, the Nordic countries and into the Arctic Circle, Texture / Contexture seeks to bring a slowness to the viewer’s gaze and encourage an appreciation for the often overlooked, beautiful detail in our world.

It is while closely examining and defining the subject out of context that we see the blurring between natural and man-made, the questioning of macro or micro, and our influence of preservation or destruction. The series places natural objects alongside constructed elements from the past; showing countless years of proof of humanity’s influence in forming the world of our present day, be it for the prosperity of the planet, or for our own species’ consumptive advancement.
This elimination of contextual focus makes it possible for the viewer to appreciate the details for their own merits whilst simultaneously viewing the entire collection. As art historian and cultural theorist Aby Warburg often said, ‘God is in the detail’.

This is a 1st edition C-Type photographic print on Endura Metallic paper. This artwork is 40x40cm; face mounted on perspex with no edge frame. There is a box aluminium hook mount (hanging instructions provided).
Please Note:
*This work is a limited edition of 10. All editions are signed, named and editioned on the back of the work. A label is provided that is signed and dated for authenticity.

Artist Profile

Born: 1982

Hometown: Sydney

Based in: Sydney

Through photography and sculpture, my work is focused on the built and natural landscapes in which humans occupy and interact. Giving specific attention to the complex ecological systems and the ancestral theorem that guide our understanding of them. It is by looking at the exploration of the human experience of the post-contemporary landscape, with specific investigations into interaction and spatiality.
By creating sculptural photographic works, I aim to provide an alternative direction in which to engage with the photographic format and materiality for both maker and observer, whilst utilising the architectural space of the gallery.

Within these spheres, my practice gives specific attention to two key areas – complex ecological systems and the ancestral theorem that guide our understanding of them. It is by looking at the exploration of the human experience of the post-contemporary landscape, with specific investigations into interaction and spatiality, that I base my work.

By creating sculptural photographic works, I aim to provide an alternative direction in which to engage with the photographic format and materiality for both maker and observer, whilst utilising the architectural space of the gallery.
These works strive to give a heightened understanding of spatiality as well as interaction from multiplicitous viewpoints in the gallery spaces in which they are seen.
