Faults

The series Faults is the result of an investigation into geological processes, and humans’ desire to control and obtain organic matter. The work produced uses a layering technique informed by sedimentary rock formations to create a combustible mould. The surface of the works resemble geological strata, yet they are fictional and constructed masses, made real by his imagination. The combination of human labour and manipulation of material is a reflection of human intervention on earth. The choice of materials and processes used creates tension in the work, reflective of landscape, industry, geology and human experience.
