Lowlands is a soft lament to the voice of self-critique. Tumbling into the space after sadness and catching the inner voice of judgement, it shapes a dream-like trance that lulls and endures. Images emerge through the watery tissue of the work, evoking a body falling apart and gathering itself together again, a body at sea and a body on a patchwork of waves. Lowlands is about the aesthetics of perceived inadequacy, the common fear of lack of creativity, and the anxiety of production. It constructs a blue world where the fragility of these emotions are contained with care, creating ripples of paper and painterly images.
