In these abstract sculptures, I explore preoccupations with roads, paths, journeys, and human marks in the landscape. They take the vocabulary of lettering: the chisel edged brush and the incised line, and push them deep into abstraction. Connecting the body through the haptic act of carving, with landscape in its most elemental form; stones become landscapes and roads, paths, and rivers rich metaphors for our human journeying. The cadences of cycling, swimming, and walking find an echo in the rhythms of carving, and the experience of traversing a landscape finds its expression in the drawing of a line across a stone. Mindful of this moment of environmental crisis; in the age of the Anthropocene, the work asks, "what traces are we leaving in the earth?"
