Landscape is what I research and explore as an artist. How it interacts, changes, moves and feels to those who experience it. Working with Indian ink and the natural surfaces of Lokta paper, I am interested in how line and movement can express a landscape’s form and emotion. Combining the practise of drawing alongside photography, cinematography, sound and installation, I research into how each aspect can create environments of reflection and appreciation for the beauty of an unspecific, yet familiar and natural environment.

At the heart of my research is my own relationship with the Suffolk landscape I have inhabited and walked in for years, where I continue to observe and experience how the landscape moves, interacts and evolves over time. Exploring other related themes such as Rhythm, Movement and the Immersion and Experience of these through Detail, I seek to express that all aspects are interlinked to one another and intrinsically related to Landscape.

 

Film Installation of 'RHYTHM: A Meditation on Landscape' (Digital Mock Up)

With the installation and film an immersive, cinematic and meditative experience will be created which envelopes the viewer with sound, landscape and detail. In an empty dark room three projectors will play the same film on three white walls in unison, connected to one another. 

How the videos connect is edited to create a larger composition that extends beyond the edge of each ink drawing – where vines, grass and leaves put together form a greater expanse of turf, an expanded and moving composition, which engulfs the viewer in the landscape’s detail.

The installation is designed to create a seamless connecting of screens and an infinite array of moving foliage that appear to move in the sunlight, while the sounds of nature recorded in the garden carry the film and viewer inwards with a hypnotic rhythm. As an immersive experience and film, it aims to draw the viewer in and immerse them in the landscape’s ambience and rhythmic beauty.
