A Western understanding of space is founded on the segmentation of the land by roads, fences and signposts. Jordan Charles Stokes’ "Cuttings" series considers this human intervention into the natural landscape. For this series Stokes ventured into geographical “non-places” unidentified on topographical maps to document the large cuttings that traverse the bushland to make way for electrical wires and roads.

In contrast Cuttings depicts a microcosmic view of landscape alteration. The triptych shows tree stems and branches cut during hazard reduction for the bushfire season. The photographs document an intimate ritual of cutting, collecting and binding, to become an artifact of deep symbolic meaning. This body of work offers rural counterpoint to Stokes’ urban based photography exhibited in his solo show Homes of Nostralia, Gaffa (2017). Stokes holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts from UNSW Art and Design (COFA) and a Masters in Media Arts and Production from the University of Technology.
