Weather appears in this lens-based work as both a creative and a destructive force. Elements of water, earth, fire and air mix with materials of ink and paper, the eye and hand in dialogue with the effects of time and weather.
The photographs are presented as the residue of time spent in a landscape and the process of mark making, obliteration and redrawing that occurred. Poetically, and serendipitously, the work also became a metaphor for the often harsh realities of rural life and a fallible world in which nature always has the final say.
