The 'Ashes to Ashes' series was started in 2019 and features a series of single pigment paintings that are usually made in situ. The paint is hand made from Apple tree charcoal, (or where stated, other vegetation). The paintings are painted on old laptop screens using nearby twigs, leaves, fingers and brushes. The works are a meditation on the gothic, with obvious references to sustainability, ecology, the landscape tradition, growth and observation. More subtly the 'apple' theme, both in terms of computers and the fruit tree links to knowledge and its dispersal as well as the first hand experience and second hand representation of the world.
