I consistently try not to see the world as Nature and Culture or subject and object, but as a unified field of relationships. Dualism is an over simplification that can be harmful to our current ecological condition—when we view the non-human world as objects, it is a precursor for abusing that world as well as divorcing our self from any responsibility for our planetary impact. We are not the sole subject of the narrative of Earth. Our landscapes are woven with the stories, trajectories and agencies of human, animal, plant, mineral, idea and thing. We have a dependence on this landscape of things, alive and material, which in turn is dependent on us.
‘Pictures of You’ refers to the permeability of the self when taking this view. Where does the individual end? We are the landscape we live in. You live here? I painted you. My work is a collaboration with landscape in order to produce affects in myself and others, aesthetically and emotionally reconfiguring ways of seeing the world.
