'Connections of Memory' is part of a larger ongoing project exploring the relationship between memory and my environment, both real and imagined. This is a visual representation of how a ‘view’ (usually that of a landscape) sparks a sequence of memory and triggers an emotional response.
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.
