There is a place called Desolation Wilderness
A series of drawings created in response to the joint artist residency with Stewart Francis Easton at St Mary's Art Centre in Virginia City - Nevada, America. Drawings from memory of the places we visited on our adventure in America.
A journal of a sequence of events occurring over a period of time and location in space.
Internal Wilderness is part of an ongoing project looking at ‘landscape and memory’ - our relationship with the environment, effects we have on the world and space around us and in turn it’s profound affect on our own memory and emotions.
Each of these landscapes is a starting point to a much bigger adventure that strives to answer the question of what lays beyond the horizon.
Within the space on each sheet of paper a world can be created either from a distant memory of a childhood holiday or from the desire to see parts of the world that for now are only dreamed about.
The 'Internal Wilderness' book has a selection of drawings from this series. 32 full colour pages printed on Tintoretto Gesso stock, 102mm x 152mm.
