.. an elsewhere world

Where can it be found again,
An elsewhere world, beyond Maps and atlases,
Where all is woven into
And of itself, like a nest
Of crosshatched grass blades?

- Seamus Heaney

I see the project as a way of rounding off my print oeuvre and the culmination of a lifetime’s work. I see it as a way ofbringing a type of stability or balance to the array of projects and print outcomes I’ve worked on since 1977 when I made those first connections to the print medium. I see it as a palimpsest of flora, fauna and geology I encounter on daily walks with my partner Helena and our pups in the Queenstown hills. I see it as an expression of how I now live and an expression of what I love!
