Recent work has involved the study of the ‘threshold’: as a defined geographical and emotional space, at which a moment is of sufficient intensity it becomes a point at which something will happen or take effect. It is an exploration of a remembered moment and an illusion of it, a fractured state of liminality – a sense of being neither here nor there – balanced on the brink of an unfolding narrative. By using an eclectic mix of references in my work – from existential literature to folklore, from unreliable memory to the captured truth of a snapshot photograph, from dog-walking thoughts in Wintery drizzle to the cross-referenced browsing of Wikipedia – I can investigate the language of topography and landscape and explore the sense of anticipation as defined in the gap on the horizon. read full statement
