By focusing on techniques and materials, I investigate the dynamics of landscape, fauna and flora, including the manipulation of its effects and the limits of spectacle based on our assumptions of what landscape means to us. Rather than presenting a factual reality, an illusion is fabricated to conjure the realms of our imagination.
The drawings establish a link between the landscape’s reality and that imagined by its conceiver. These works focus on concrete questions that determine our existence. By exploring the concept of landscape in a nostalgic way, this considers making art a craft which is executed using clear formal rules and which should always refer to social reality.
The works are notable for their perfect finish and tactile nature. This is of great importance and bears witness to great craftsmanship. By examining the ambiguity and origination via retakes and variations, I try to increase the dynamic between audience and author by objectifying emotions and investigating the uality that develops through different interpretations.
The works never shows the complete structure. This results in the fact that the artist can easily imagine an own interpretation without being hindered by the historical reality. I currently live and work in Northern Rivers. Viv
