Statement about AOAP Submitted Artwork   

 

Inspired by a phrase of the song 'Choices, Like Wide Rivers' by James Yorkston and The Second Hand Orchestra, I was thinking about the choices that we make that affect our lives and the decisions that parents have to make for their children that will determine their futures. I wanted the rock to appear slightly confusing and threatening. I imagined the world flowing by the room like a river with the water eddying around your chair as you tried to make the correct move while not getting washed away. Although there are no figures in my work, it's always about people and lived experience. The ideas are shown through the lens of geology, time, space and the minutiae of landscape.
