“The land has always been there in my mind, beginning with a childhood helping on the farm. The passing on of the land from one generation to the next represents continuity and instils a deep sense of belonging. I grew up, therefore in a place where history and traditions were relevant and my familiar landscape was connected by a network of mythic and cultural associations. The art of storytelling celebrated life in all its forms, thus fuelling a culture founded on narrative as opposed to a visual tradition, creating fabulous and complex imagery of the mind.”
