THE UNDERSTORY

The ecological classification for the lowest-most layer of undergrowth on the rainforest floor.
Where animal and plant life abounds, but sunlight is scarcest.

 

The relationship between the appearance of a landscape and the realities it conceals.

 

A constellation of works drawing on narratives surrounding the history of sugar:

a photographic exploration of an extinct sugar plantation - dense rainforest witness to a concealed history.

 

A series of sugar paintings exploiting the natural crystallisation of sugar; a process of resolution rather than entropy. Artistic control is relinquished, whilst medium and concept  inextricably bound.
