Reconcile (2022) is the result of two years spent engaging with immersive nature-based practices for cathartic release, to work through a sense of dissociation following a period of turbulence. I swam in cold lakes and rivers, walked through forests, touched the trees and moss and soil, sat, listened, and breathed fresh air. Through this process of wordless conversation with the earth I found reconciliation - between human and nature, and with myself. I discovered an ineffable kinship with nature and inspiration in its mycorrhizal networks or 'wood wide webs'. In nature I found cathartic release, and Reconcile is the vessel with which I embarked on this journey. Every piece is a labour of catharsis from beginning to end.
