My work investigates space, seeing distance and understanding how wide open spaces, particularly of the Australian landscape affect us.  I am fascinated by the unreachable space. The view we look upon, but can never reach.

My work investigates space, seeing distance and understanding how wide open spaces, particularly of the Australian landscape affect us.  I am fascinated by the unreachable space. The view we look upon, but can never reach.

In this minimal landscape, all elements are stripped back, light becomes the landscape and I am left looking at space, the space between here.…and there. This viewed distance is a place we can never reach, never get to, for as we move towards it, it moves away from you. Is this a real place or is it a projected space of the imagination.

When visiting  Kati Thanda (Lake Eyre) in South Australia, one becomes immersed in the present, but in the context of a much greater timeline. Lake Eyre is a landscape of water. Water travelled, evaporated, its residue left and then becoming visible again at altitude as cloud. An ever changing constant of formations.

The process I’ve created to make the pieces reflects the concept.  Solid glass is ground up to make glass powder.  With water, the powder is moved across the glass surface.  I then leave the water to evaporate: it leaves an imprint—a watermark—in the glass.  The piece is then fired in the kiln and the process repeated for subsequent layers.  The process is movement of water through evaporation.
