TESSA GRUNDON


STATEMENT


I use an array of materials and artifacts relating to specific geographical locations - local maps, wax from nearby beehives, pigments from the muds, earths, plants and charcoal, debris found along the strandlines of shores and riverbanks both rural and urban. With these materials I create work that embodies a sense of place, totems of landscapes I know and love.

My work references a range of inspirations including the topography and history of a place and its ever-changing environment, from the shifting tides to the effect of man on the landscape, to man himself and the shared visual language of natural forms.
