My work is rooted in landscape – particularly wild, remote, sometimes bleak locations – and a fascination with its small-scale details and textures.
Etching provides an ideal medium with which to portray what are largely monochrome landscapes. The traditional technique of sugar-lift aquatint allows the image to be built up through layers of tightly-controlled drawing, and more abstract, semi-random marks, that mimic the natural processes that texture the landscape. While working on the etchings there is a constant tension between my natural tendency towards realism and finely rendered detail and a desire to simplify and abstract the image to achieve a looser rendering that maintains the energy of the original sketches made in the field.
