Wild Lament

Maintenance and repair are key concerns in my work, responding to generational and historic shifts in the environment. Much of the work on show explores my interest in hunting. I am particularly interested in hunting as a right of passage and a shared activity within particular communities. There is a sense of lament not only in the death of the animals but the death of community and ritualistic practices associated with the landscape. My interest is partly fueled by my involvement in the sport of field archery, a sport that simulates the hunting experience through use of paper targets and 3D animal replicas. This sport takes place in natural woodland settings therefore I am also drawn to the evidence of tree maintenance, pruning chopping and removal. The gold stitching on my tree stump drawings is an attempt to repair a wound, which is already too severe. Through my work I play with the juxtaposition of the real and unreal, the act and the simulation, the actual experience and the experience imagined.
