These works are part of a larger series of drawings in which I collage together found landscape images to explore formal relationships and to create a dialogue between the parts and a newly constructed whole. Alterations to the source can be subtle or apparent, and are used subversively to play on the conventions of naturalism. The work is created without mechanical or grid-based aid, pushing the limits of my observational and drafting skills to offer an image that should be believable to the viewer, despite its being completely fabricated.
