'The series from 'From 4000 Feet' asks us to re-imagine the landscape and reassess our relationship to the land. An aerial depiction of the Australian landscape particularly concentrated around the edges of salt lakes in remote areas of Western Australia. The work plays on abstracting the landscape through a process of subtraction. By looking straight down at the land the horizon is eliminated, the contours and shape of the land are flattened and the land is reduced to colour, line and contrast. Working through a small window in a tiny plane presented its own physical and technical difficulties but I have never felt such an incredible combination of fear and awe. At this distance the familiar landscape becomes microscopic and abstract and from this perspective we can be reacquainted with the sublime power and beauty of nature.'
