This year I have been trying mixed media methods of expression including painting, life drawing, sculpture and 3D, photography, textile and film. My themes have largely been influenced by personal experience, and I have had the opportunity to understand more deeply what is the role of art in times of chaos from the Pandemic, to the destruction of the environment, to the development of AI technologies. Does mankind have a chance to survive, save the planet, the world and themselves as a human race? The survival project offered a wide range of possibilities to answer this question. My answer is only through insight into our own consciousness can we change our thoughts, feelings and choices, and through conscious choices we can change the world.
I have created a collection of acrylic paintings, Journey to the World of the Spirit, to guide you on your journey into the deepest aspects of human nature. The first of the series DIVINE REUNION, depicts the primal form of feminine and masculine energy in the language of symbols. Inspired by impressionist and post-impressionist paintings, and Buddhist philosophy especially has impacted my outcomes.
