My studio practice revolves around the idea of absence, specifically in regards to negative space. I am fascinated by the way that absence can, in a sense, materialize. ‘Unlanded’ highlights the space between my feet and the ground. After many years of living outside of my home country, Canada, I’ve often felt feelings of never quite landing in any one city or country.  “Place” and “home” have become very abstract ideas in my everyday nomadic life. Experiences such as driving on another side of the road or never knowing where anything is in a grocery store heighten this feeling of being suspended above ground.
