My Creative Practice
How can phenomenological analysis present new meanings of bodily experiences in a material landscape, exploring the relationship of temporality and landscape through painting?
Current investigations include the Caradon Hill district area combined with a contemporary approach to painting. This body of work aims to describe the material encounters of the Cornish Moors and illustrates the experience of landscape through a combination of site specific materials included in the work.
‘Material Landscape’ offers insights of my own situated knowledge of place. The paintings challenge the physical dynamics of understanding experience in place as well as regarding the material forms we all immerse ourselves within. These site specific pieces not only represent the heritage of the Moors but represents the cultural and social history of place that we all encounters.
