Continental Shift V

“Continental Shift explores man’s growing sense of alienation from the natural environment, shifting it into an abstracted and digitised space, in order to further neglect and avoid growing environmental concerns. Referencing fragments of imagery from the artist’s garden and then manipulated digitally, until it generates new abstract landscapes that are unfamiliar and dystopian. The process examines the tensions between the organic forms of nature and the structures we impose on them. Images are dissected and collapsed into singular but complex platforms. It becomes a way of mapping our immediate spaces, whilst challenging traditional depictions of landscape art in South Africa.
Since mapping has a history of colonialism, and of plotting “unchartered” space, this practice of construction and deconstruction attempts to reverse and re-imagine, in a sense unoccupying space. Working with a combination of structure and chance, it allows for a vulnerable space that evokes a sense of uncertainty and otherworldliness.”
