I am using coppiced hazel cordwood as my canvas which stand in the landscape as a metaphor for human intervention. The variety of marks are informed by a meditative process while living alongside a habitually familiar character in unusual circumstances. I have drawn contour lines to represent the landscape and its affects on our mood changes, structured by uncontrolled events. Chalk paint allows the stem to breathe and to continue its cyclical journey through to decomposition.
