The works in 'Souvenirs from the Natural World' continue a thread which goes back over thirty years of practice. The natural environment and our place in it have been an enduring subject in my work since the late seventies and culminated recently in a PhD, which examined the cultural dimension of the environmental responsibilities we need to address.
This current exhibition looks at the way Western culture perceives and often commodifies nature in a way that presents it as just another item amongst others, rather than the denominator that determines how a workable future is even possible.
Each work divides itself into a dialogue between culture and nature. At this time in history, a still to be reconciled conundrum.
