Many opportunities exist within the urban landscape for artistic practices. For me the city is a living museum that contains visuals from the past and the present. My practice explores the degeneration of cities where social and historical significance's are visible of being lost. Decaying architectural surface layers provide a trace and glimpse of our past history, fueling my desire to visually record and document these transient states. The use of intaglio processes supports my vision in the subjects I am depicting. Textures and marks are important to my practice as it helps express what my eye witnesses in the urban landscape. The etching process requires an enforced decay whereby the acid bites into the copper plate, resonating with the natural decay of the structures that I am recording. By documenting crumbling forms, I hope to make society more aware of their direct environment and the history that we are losing from urban expansion and redevelopments. I want people to slow down and properly consider subjects that too many of us would normally walk straight past and ignore.
