I have taken my cue for this project from the remnants of root architecture that I found at the base of upturned trees. On this occasion, it is the meanderings, rhythm and poetry of root systems that interest me more than biology or metaphor. In their fully functional form, roots reside in the shadows of the seen and known. It is only in their lifeless state, once the tree has been uprooted, that we get a glimpse of what might have been.

Through the woodblock carving and printing process, I have imagined something of the depth, complexity and mystery of a system elemental to a life. As a starting point for my matrix, I have used industrial grade and discarded timbers, ones that struggle to still show traces of the miracles of their origin. It is in searching out those traces that I find hidden and unexpected form.
