Silent, Dark and Deep
The forests depicted are those of the imagination, traces of woods from memory. Exploring the fine line between reality and a constructed visual fantasy they draw on the strangeness hidden beneath the surface of the commonplace. This series addresses the undertones of danger and anxiety that thread through modern life and the ways in which spaces are characterized as safe and unsafe. The boundary lines emphasize the delineation between inside and outside, welcome and unwelcome, seen and unseen, known and unknown.
