Seeking Sanctuary


Digital drawing, photography, timber, foam board, Perspex

My body of work forms an interactive exploration of the desire to escape the confines of a fast-paced living environment and to seek serenity and sanctuary within one’s home or within a natural landscape. I highlight the emotional connections people feel in vast and beautiful landscapes through accumulations of photography, digital drawing and short poems. The sliding panels represent our ability to travel to and from these locations as we seek escapism, whereas the house frames are fixed, to represent the solid foundation and comfort found within the walls of our homes.
