These photographs are called drawings to suggest their gestural and participatory approach to landscape photography. They depict quiet alterations made to the land, often just to a bare patch of ground. For the artist, each work marks a temporary, meaningful site embedded with meditations on everyday life. They claim fragments as narrative artifacts, treat material remnants as feeling sculptures, and prize absence over presence. Sometimes the titles become discursive poems. Having grown up on archaeological excavations, these works are heavily influenced by a childhood spent staring at the ground. ‘Drawings' is an ongoing body of work.
