    for The Artist of the Month April 2014 Challenge.

Work was inspired by the following

  • Symbolism
    + Abstract, Archetypal Expressionism
    + ‘Trans’ – acknowledgement of transitional states and the work of the spirit through the repetition of the X’s reflecting time, movement, physical attachment (replica of stitching).
    + The X’s: Vortex symbol, “As is above, so is below”, spirit/matter, heaven/earth realms, parallels, thoughts, manifestation, stitching – attachment, mesh, lattice, interconnections, signifying realms of planes – a particular level of existence, mental activity, or achievement.
    + Channels, layers, gold stitching – passage, transit, conduit, levels, planes
    + Vessels – embodiment of your ‘being’, inner alchemy processes, all is one, facing up – open, receive, filter, give and take, inverted dome – shelter, nurture, protect, shadow self, dualities, containment.
    + Colours/fabric, rice paper collage – Primal, energy/chakra levels, alchemies, signifying realms of existence, of various planes – worldly, spiritual

My “creative art practice” may be be succinctly summed up in the following fantastic metaphorical quote by Kandinsky:
~ “Colour is the keyboard, the eyes are the harmonies, the soul is the piano with many strings. The artist is the hand that plays, touching one key then another to cause vibration of the soul.”
