Equal parts science fiction narrative and existentialist thinking, this series of ominous and absurd ‘landscape-portrait’ paintings evoke a time outside of our human timescale and places unknown. Anthropomorphism of geological strata and references to historical portraiture cleverly combine here; offering a contemplation of the physical earth, of deep geologic time and our human emergence and role on this evolving planet.
