These works dramatise the familiar in order to create a more seductive dimension that might cause the viewer to drift elsewhere. to a stranger place where worlds collapse and intersect. Nature is depicted as transient and ephemeral within ambiguous environments that reverse or rearrange ordered thinking. Humanity is seen as suspended between aid and attack. or support and threat. while also intrinsically linked to the natural world Paradoxical relationships between nature and culture emerge.
