THE ART OF MEMORY

 

Night Sea Journey

&

Spontaneous Generation

Revisited

From formlessness to a study of a salt marsh near Dunbar...

 

explorations of the basic substance of salt and its meaning both physical and psychological...

 

the increasing changes to our planet’s subtle ecology brought about through human activity...

 

from earth, air, fire and water, from Hydrogen to element 118 Ununoctium...

In my creative practice I am interested in exploring the means by which we have attempted and still attempt to understand and derive meaning from the physical world we inhabit and its relationship to the cosmos.

This selection of work returns to some of the themes I have explored over the years, in bodies of work such as: The Recovery of Dissolved Substances; Revenges of Nature; Flammable Solid Flammable Liquid; A Chamber of the Moon; Of Nature’s Obvious Laws and Processes in Vegetation.
