Geoff Molyneux
Artist and Lecturer at Liverpool Community College, Liverpool, England.

Geoff's recent work is concerned with the appropriation of landscape and how humans have taken ownership of the landscape by naming geographical locations.

This and the creation of mythologies and histories can alter our perception of a site, just as much as if the land were physically altered.

"Personal interventions have made me aware of the relevance of the materials to the places I journey to or make work in. Many pieces I make are very temporary in nature - some more relatable than recordable".
