While you are here




Installation view, While You Are Here
Lindberg Galleries, 2022


At the interplay between abstraction and representation, While You Are Here is the collaboration between the artist and materials. The organic forms of the landscape play the role of a structure; and within lies the possibility of depiction beyond representation but is still grounded ontologically in the world. Though these artworks originate from a direct experience of landscape, the viewer is invited to look beyond any romanticised notions of nature and to encounter the affect of collaborative forces of the layering of paint, textures, colours and above all materiality.
