Tigerfox     b.


  

I am an environmental landscape artist, who repeatedly investigates small areas of land as a catalyst for developing my work, discovering something new every time. I am searching for the sublime within an ordinary everyday moment. I walk, taking time; I observe and record my surroundings. I am creating space to feel the awe and wonder that the expanse of land, sea and sky stirs in me. I permit time to slow and let the ordinary become extraordinary; I find moments of transcendence and connection. I realise my insignificance in the vastness of nature, whilst recognising that I am a part of something larger than myself. 


I watch and record changing environments in an improvisational and collaborative way, using modern and Romantic working methods. These include; experimentation with the drawn line and mark-making, ‘en plein air’ sketching and photography to achieve total immersion and a greater synergy with my world. I contemplate and research the contemporary sublime and question how I might illustrate and record its changing appearance. This liberates a growing understanding of the genre of landscape art, as elements within the environment are harnessed to produce idiosyncratic marks, through which Nature offers a voice.
