Growing up in a Devonshire isolated rural area has instilled within me a love of natural environments and a concern for their preservation. This is why I only use recycled and reclaimed materials and objects, so my sculptural pieces will have a minimal impact on natural resources.
It has taken me 10 years to find the right reclaimed materials for this current series of 3 sculptures. In a world that is constantly changing via incredible leaps in technology and unbelievable strains upon the environment I am constantly questioning our connection to the land and our loss of healthy relationships with our countryside. How do we arrive at a place where a balance has been found between human invention and nature.
At what point will we begin to realise we are not moving through a passive landscape, but through a landscape that is a reflection of our lost feel of the places we live, of the nature, of the Earth.
As a site-specific environmental public sculptor, I want to highlight the moral, ethical and communal obligations we owe our landscapes. If we assign ourselves; humans as masters of every space then aren’t we responsible?
With “Roche Moutonnee”, “White Hart”, and “Pork”, I want to create a dialogue asking should we as humans change the landscape using animals? We can but should we? The farming of animals has changed our environments irrevocably. What is the next step?
