Paradise Lost forms a portrait of an idyllic environment, a place, which has offered refuge for humans, animals, and flora. The lake and surrounding woodland have been sold. There remains a great deal of uncertainty and speculation over the future of this special place and its wildlife. It is thought that the lake will be drained to create a housing development or closed off for private game shooting and hunting.

This work considers how greed and desire for power can decimate the world as once known, ending happiness, inflicting lasting pain and despair. These images seek to convey the emotions elicited by uncertainty, vulnerability, and impending loss.
