Abstracted Earth was formulated at a time when I first began to explore the ancestral abilities which I had inherited from my Celtic background. I am sensitive to the energetic shifts in my environment and as a result, my emotional connection to place is often processed through a form of energetic echolocation, whereby the expulsion of my own energy in the environment is reflected back in the form of intuitive, mental visualisations. These ancestral connections to nature allow me to see the energetic interactions between plants, fungi, and microbiota as well as insects and their response to changes in environmental conditions. These works are representative of this process and emphasise the hidden, complex dynamics between organisms found in nature. Their abstraction is created using Adobe Photoshop’s algorithmic distortions, combined with chemigrams and cyanotypes which utilize the biological chemistry of microorganisms. This series is ongoing, led intuitively by my connection to environment and recreates the expression of energy produced when the organisms present in these environments communicate with each other.
