A theme I return to a lot in my practice is home and how we inhabit the space around us. I’ve often felt overwhelmed by the power of nature and the landscape, especially when we try to ‘tame’ it to some degree. I’ve had to learn over the years that it’s impossible to fight against the land and shape it to our whims. We are here for a short time and then we return to the earth, so any little mark we have made will fade away and be consumed by this world. This painting is based on where I live now, looking into my neighbour’s property. I imagine the generations that have come and gone on this land and how their lives have impacted it and how no matter how hard they tried they were always just temporary residents.
