There is a poetry that runs throughout my practice by using byproducts of burnt trees, charcoal and ash to bring life back in an art form to create a heightened awareness. In displacing these materials I can bring the outside world into the gallery space. Materials are important to me being that they are all connected to wood.

My practical methodologies inter-link between ecology, location, space, context, representation and materials. I have begun to explore how a space or location can alter a work’s importance or appearance. When a work is placed within a traditional white cube setting it instantly gains more acknowledgment and acceptance.

I use Robert Smithson’s critical writings to influence my own where I use the ‘non-site’ as a document or a direct representation of the site through drawings, photography and installations and like Smithson use the ‘non-site’ as a definition of the gallery space.
