 Construct:

This ongoing series of photographic works are based on outdoor experiences as I traveled through various landscapes. The works are constructed from photographs taken during my travels and wilderness adventures. The 4 section compositions represent the ‘4 elements’ (earth, air, fire & water).

Artist Statement:

Wind and water erosion, or events like volcanoes and forest fires physically shape the surface of this planet to form both distinctive landscape features and reoccurring patterns in nature. What we see when we look at a landscape is really a history of the interaction between the 4 elements.

More importantly, our perception is flavoured by the 4 elements while we are outside. For example, fierce wind, cold rain, or warm sun will completely change our experience of the same landscape. In other words, our perception is filtered through an emotional response to the ever changing interplay of the 4 elements.

The intricate combination of events that produce any situation or any journey can never be duplicated even if we revisit the exact same place. These works are a tribute to the uniqueness of each passing moment.
