My recent work is a personal exploration of landscapes
glimpsed and remembered while journeying. That journey is not exotic; rather it
is the sort of regular, routine journey common in modern life. On my frequent
train travels between London and the North, the ancient natural features are
overlaid by more modern histories: pylons, roads, train tracks and waterways.
Journeying through the capital, particularly here around the Lea Valley, these
infrastructures form their own ubiquitous beauty, but nature is never
completely absent. I am part of these landscapes, cityscapes and
infrastructure. I observe and record them and my fellow passengers. In my
travels I am transported.
