My work explores the constructed world in an attempt to move between the real and the imagined. The individual works are spatial experiments, reconstructed, referenced and cross-referenced to provide abstracted viewpoints to question notions of place and time.

‘Utopia is a powerful trope in western culture. In its simplest form, it refers to a better place, a place in which the problems that beset our current condition are transcended or resolved. Yet it also means, or at any rate suggests a pun on the ancient Greek words for ‘no place’, a place imagined but not realized, the ‘shining on the hill’ that illuminates the limitations of the world in which we actually live, the telescope that allows us to grasp the ‘nearest nearness.’

Images of buildings from Melbourne’s CBD are collated and hand- printed together from four different copper plates that have been etched, aquatinted and relief printed, overlaying each other to construct a dialogue between the constructed and imagined world. They are an attempt to locate sites where buildings can speak about our past, present and maybe our future. How we morph together images from our lives to invent and designate layers of memory and fact, upon which the imagined and real are combined to create a more appealing reality.
