'Art that arises out of the inner landscape, and is connected to our lived experience, illuminates the darkness and heals the soul' - Daria Halprin
My body of work explores the nebulous subject of the interior life. My practice, rooted in the contemplative path and the study of the mystics, explores my own inner landscape; a fractal of the human experience. My work, like a mirror, reflects back to the self, its journey inwards towards the centre.
I use painting as a medium through which to make the invisible, visible. Colour, mark and form give expression where language fails. Through abstraction I invite the viewer towards new perceptions and insights. By surrendering to the creative process, I am a vessel guided by the work. This intuitive approach enables me to circumvent the intellect in order to access a naked intent towards the true self, beckoning the viewer on their own journey into the interior life.
