I have been interested in the idea of recreating an image of a landscape through processes of fragmentation, working with 'the line' as a medium for construction and separation. Blocks of material are consciously fragmented in a rationalised breaking, which simultaneously frees and demarcates a form from a space, and are later reunited.
They are accumulations of a changing image that captures the rhythms and patterns of the deconstructed and reconstructed image. The resulting pieces are fractures, inscribed in a landscape which develops and liberates through the will of control and simultaneous release.
