Artist’s statement

The beauty of nature is often taken for granted and through sheer chance I stumbled upon the media of cracking medium, which allowed me to portray the natural landscape in an abstract and simplistic manner. Each tile replicates the interwoven nature of colour and pattern of the vast and ever-changing Australian environment. I chose to use a patchwork-like design to tantalise the senses, attempting to evoke a memory with each tile, associated with the physical panorama of the time, looking for the ghosts of each individual past.
