My paintings and assemblages address the intimate and complex relationships between nature and humanity. The work explores the themes of stewardship and damage, fluidity and control. Paint is applied intuitively, while the incorporation of wood, lead and linen add a structural complexity. Through the layering of paint and the reconfiguration of objects and material, the work seeks to open pathways and find restoration and balance. The paintings become a material and spiritual exploration into the nature of our presence in the landscape.  – Kathryn Frund
