Haunts is inspired by the world outside my front door in the cold, early light of
frosty winter mornings of suburban Hobart, placing my work in subtle
collusion with TV and cinema genres – mystery, suspense, Sci-Fi, and horror.
I aim to present the suburban landscape in a state of calm that is both
eerie and unnerving, to reveal the commonplace and the everyday as simultaneously strange and familiar, to imbue its objects with a presence that is perhaps not readily apparent
in the context of routine perception. Likewise, the cars that are either parked in, or moving through the landscape are apparitions that haunt the present.
