“A History of the Post-Anthropocene” my current series, explores ‘Chimera’, objects that are assembled from nature but not of it. The photographic tableaus are based on specific biomes, envisioning dramatic and unpredictable futures of flora and fungi. These characters are lit and photographed on a stage inspired by natural history museum dioramas. 

My intention with this work is to appeal to the viewer’s sense of wonder and offer an experience of the macro and micro worlds that are often unseen or forgotten. These spaces are central to our understanding and appreciation of the natural world, and its ability to remake itself in times of great stress. My vision contains the hope of a future of nature that embraces both the sadness of what is passing and a celebration of what will come.

 

Previous ‘chapters’ have been created in the fire scorched High Sierras of Yosemite and the sub-Alpine forests of Banff where I was an artist-in-residence at the Banff Centre for the Arts in March, 2024 and the Bay of Banderas, in coastal Mexico.
