My art practice explores human interaction with the urban and industrial landscape and focuses on the neglect that has occurred due to misuse and exploitation by industrial manufacturers. They explore the legacy of industry and are an examination of the social and ecological structures of areas surrounding of Rhodes in Sydney, Fremantle in Western Australia and Port Kembla in New South Wales. My relief and drypoint prints explore changes that occur in this environment, presenting a commentary on the degradation and pollution of land by industry, through specific observations of the post-industrial landscape.
Much of my inspiration comes from personal observations of specific landscapes. Through photographs, sketches and the collection of data I have constructed narratives that explore the suburban fringe: locations where the physical environment is being continually transformed amid remnants of a post-industrial past.
