81 Wild

(2020) 81 Wild is a 50-piece collection to take you to each state of America.

With help from descriptions gathered from my collectors and watchers around the world, these pieces are an attempt to mentally, visually, romantically and creatively travel to each state. The artworks are abstract translations onto paper, putting a spotlight on the state’s landscapes, weather, colours, textures, flora, fauna, sounds and culture.

The aesthetic is almost polaroid-esque, photographical and cinematic, capturing the place in one shot, in one slide, in one frame.. Colour is important; it draws your eye in instantly, gives you an automatic impression of the landscape and a feel for the character of the location.

? All pieces have now sold.
