In this work, urban park designs, grid-based patterns of cities, plans of urban pedestrian movement and medieval church floor paving informs a wall pattern reflecting on the essence of an inner-city park.
Parklife is the outcome of obsessively photographing, cutting out and ordering images of people and streets in and around the inner-city suburbs. The result is a pattern that stretches across the gallery walls, as pedestrians and joggers repetitively weave in and out around dog owners, shoppers, mothers with prams, cyclists, retirees and those just stopping and watching.
This work is part of an ongoing interest in the influence of the urban environment on people that inhabit its spaces. Parklife documents the passage of humanity on local street spaces, reflecting on the rhythm of both the individual and the city.
