It has been almost three months now since I have started setting up my work at Broomhill and I am feeling quite nervous now as all my previous outdoor work was always meant to live for a handful of weeks and never more than a month! Will it survive and how will it change?
To this point all my artificial landscapes have been intentionally ephemeral apparitions intended for the moment and in continuous flux.
The underlying core thoughts in my work are the issues of consumerism in the natural realm.
I am fascinated by the contradictions of our world and wonder where our human natural instincts will lead in this evolutionary journey of cycles.
The intangible, hybrid palm trees’ fronds, fretting under the transformative power of the wind (and of all the other natural elements that eventually will interact and interfere), might provide yet another moment where the ephemeral and the material coexist and continuously reinforce one another in a rhythmic sublime dance of creation and destruction.
