Hymn to the Horizon is a series of works rendered in oil paint, bitumen, dust and debris. Investigating abstract means and the simplicity of the horizontal line to explore surface rendering to access and communicate psychological states connected to lived and imagined terrains.
Utilising art as transformative tool for communication, my work is a rich overlay of textural history used as source material to draw attention to my own sense of identity, place, and self-expression.
