East West 

Inter-relationships are explored within the everyday mostly urban environment, observing markings, cultural symbols, iconic objects and imagery, relating to the topic of urban development.

 

Construction hoarding and Parcel Identifiers are largely recognized as signifiers of impending change, and the bulldozer, which knows no distinction, blurs the boundaries between East and West, inverting our perception of above and below and subject and object relationships. 

 

The work transcends the local topic and looks at universal themes of memory, history, loss and transformation and our deeply rooted interconnectedness with land and the environment.
