Bachelor of Fine Arts (Drawing & Printmaking)
I am fascinated by the implications of cartography and its historical use in controlling space through the delineation and projection of territory. My practice is built around finding ways of representing place, while resisting the cartographic urge to territorialise land.
My work emerges from places I encounter incidentally, often inspired by a physical object, mark or fragment found at the site. These signifiers of the site and its history undergo various processes of reproduction, such as tracing, frottage, photography or casting. Through material transformation, these fragments become abstracted, creating opportunities for speculation and reimagining what they could be. By working from specific details rather than a tangible whole, I explore new ways of relating to the spaces we occupy.
