Skin of the Earth (2021-2022)
“There is an internal landscape, a geography of the soul; we search for its outlines all our lives. Those who are lucky enough to find it ease like water over a stone, onto its fluid contours, and are home.”
Nature produces scars, they tell the story of our Earth and are an integral part of its growth. The landscape is created with the effects of time on the Earth’s skin, where mountain ranges have been pushed upwards or rock sculpted by the elements. These scars are a land’s distinguishing features, they are its personality and it’s history, they form its landmarks and are a natural result of its age.
Our bodies are no different. The ‘Skin of the Earth’ series depicts our emotional connection with the land around us, an inner landscape consisting of and representing the earth from which we all arise and to which we will all return.
