The work is a response to nature rather than a replication of it. Aspects of glaciers that interest and fascinate me inspire studio-based research. The work investigates a range of ideas about transient colours in nature and colour depth and mass.

Each work becomes a personal record – a document that captures something of the lived experience of being in and observing the natural landscape. Living in the Alps afforded me the opportunity to develop a deep appreciation for the Argentière glacier and the mountain landscape that provides it’s context. I think you can respond to something in a different way when living beside it, I didn’t feel under pressure to define my experience of it, observations, thoughts and impressions could accumulate over time – my practice developed alongside my experience of nature there.
