body of dew
dark soft, a non-

and the axon of yours

I believe I am disconnected from the land.

I have turned my gaze to my origin and access. I collect and work with material from my home area: a rural environment with agriculture and forest industry. I paint with pigments that I have made from dye plants I cultivate and harvest each year, make paper sheets of old newspapers, and build frames with wood felled by an arborist.

The alchemical term solve et coagula describe the refinement process that material goes through to transform into another form. I imagine how dissolution and coagulation can occur in painting and how I can manifest that physically.


The exhibition is open Tuesday to Friday 2 – 6 pm Saturday and Sunday 12 – 4 pm.

Due to Covid-19, a maximum of 8 people are allowed in the exhibition at the same time.
