Artist's Statement

"If one's creativity is a mirror of the inner life, this work reflects a process of gathering parts to complete the whole.

 

Building layer upon layer, moving from light to darkness, recognising that it is the darkness that holds the light. And it is the field of darkness that draws one in.

 

Both into the canvas and into an inner space of quiet and solitude. From here we have the opportunity to transcend the duality of our lives, to step into the unknown."
