A fingerprint is ‘an impression left by the friction ridges of a human finger’, and a ridge ‘a long narrow hilltop or mountain range’. If you look closely at your fingertip you’ll see ridges which can be interpreted as topographic maps, or a layering of mountains, providing a connection that we as humans have with the land. This connection brought me to inlay the narrative of my palm into surfaces to construct a portrait series of abstract images of landscape, exploring how our human ‘imprints’ resonate with the land.

Influencing artists: Andy Goldsworthy, Ewen Ross
