base gallery, tokyo 1995


the works are land based and deal with the emotion and feeling of being admist and part of nature. they can also reflecting the tough, hostile edge that is so much a part of it.

time and the elements make the land what it is. the climatic effects of sun, wind and rain, the fracturing, bleaching, erosion and decay all contribute to the most fundamental changes.

traces of the past may often remain visible becoming an inherent part of the land. the mysteries and total history may never be fully known or understood, but the spirit of mans presence, sense of times passing and the evocation of place will always be apparent for us to feel and experience through a direct link with earth.
