Having dedicated much of the last 5 years to walking and observing in and around Table Mountain
National park, my artwork emerged from consistent enquiry into the evolution of human
consciousness and its relationship to the natural world. The resulting body of work intends to
provide tools to connect to a collective perception of nature and find new ways to enjoy and share
the natural habitats that sustain us.
As the eye and the technique integrate further, separate strands of interest have become apparent.
I started with landscape portals, hewn from notably vibrant natural settings. These intend to be
symbolic sanctuaries that yield a sense of stillness and balance that the viewer can drift into and if
necessary, shelter from the distortions of modern life.
With the design based work, which mostly emerged from the same enchanted backdrop, the role of
the artist is more apparent, seeking to imbue everyday design mediums with a natural essence. With
this work the challenge is to create impact with a minimal approach, as opposed to the landscapes,
which attempt to create a focal point within large amounts of detail.
Gradually I am learning learnt that if you look at a plant, tree or rock closely enough, peel back its
physical layers, study it without intellectualising, we begin to connect to its essence and enter a
collective level of awareness. It’s a ritualistic process that sits at the core of my art.
