Never it was, 2020
Archival injket print
100 x 80cm, edition of 5 

Following a catastrophic summer, outside spaces became a refuge almost immediately after living with months of choking smoke, ash and embers.

Walking day after day I have become more drawn to the wild places, spots that felt safe, secret and sacred. Free to venture out again after a summer of sadness. Safe in my wild environment, I feel none of the anxiety experts say I should. Instead, I feel utterly at peace.

This work is an intuitive response to Covid-19: the emotional framework allowing for a poetic response to a world struggling as our modern value system is torturously dismantled.
