Grey lands (2015-)

Grey lands, an ongoing project, reconsiders the surfaces, forms and dwellers of the industrial urban environment as a response to our society's increasingly alienated character. Using industrial materials like rusted metal, brick, or concrete, which accumulate markings left behind over time, I create fields or spaces of my own, sometimes painted, sometimes in photographs or prints worked over with drawn or painted markings—simultaneously textural, messy and abstract. The urban animals and plants that inhabit these environments adopt human-like traits, behaviours and strategies. The human presence is manifest in traces—not the people themselves, but evidences of their passage: a happy face, an apple core—a world of non-places occupied by lost beings and objects.
