  52.005586, -9.740718  2019, ink on paper, 1500mm x 1500mm  This set of drawings are of Carauntoohil, the highest peak in Ireland. Its a sacred place and it has spectacular peaks and dramatic ridges. I wanted to capture this with the appearance of something quick and fluid like a painting but with the considered process of drawing. The aim was to create a fluidity of line and a weight to the composition.

  Pine Island Glacier I  2019, ink on paper, 1016mm x 1372mm  A glacier is a persistent body of dense ice that is constantly moving under its own weight, it forms from a constant thawing and freezing of fallen snow over many years, often centuries. Glaciers slowly deform and flow due to stresses induced by their weight, creating crevasses, waves and other distinguishing features. This series of glacial drawings are visual representations of these natural phenomena. The drawing process is incredibly slow, it starts off serene and builds to a crescendo.

  Larsen separation I  2019, ink on paper, 838mm x 1143mm  The reference for these drawings comes from readily available Satellite imagery. I draw one single line that most expresses the lie of the land and that is the only time that I reference the image. From then on the drawing grows organically and can often bear little resemblance to the original. In both the drawings and the original images it is difficult to tell whether it is on a macro or micro scale. As of 2017 Larsen C is the largest Ice shelf in Antarctica. These drawings are abstract visual descriptions of its journey though separation.

  Ffos-Y-Fran I  2018, ink on paper, 1500mm x 1500mm  Around the world mining is causing massive environmental, social and political problems. These scars on the landscape have come to typify our attitude to our environment. There is however a certain physical beauty in the man-made ever changing landscape.

  Grasberg I  2018, ink on paper, 1500mm x 1500mm  Grasberg mine in Indonesia is the largest gold mine in the world and its operation has obliterated the neighbouring mountains. The juxtaposition between the natural beauty and manmade environmental damage is stark.
