Artist Statement

For me, art is a contemplative practice, where the communication of an idea is an act of suggestion.

It is process oriented: time slows down, and painting becomes an active meditation.

I search for sensuality within the mediums, inviting seductive textures and adding further layers of meaning both materially and conceptually.

Sound adds another dimension.

The complexity of the compositions lie within the simplicity of form, both visually and aurally.

The process is one of research, experimentation and ultimately of surrendering to the mysterious.

I believe that by venturing into the deeper levels of our own beings, we are able to touch the Universal; Jung’s archetypal and collective subconscious, an holonic universe. From here the viewer is invited to create their own dialogue with the works, and, I hope is also touched by the mystery from whence it was created.
