WORK FEATURED IN
“In Elevating the Spirit, connections, relationships and unity are explored through visual language elements and symbology, between one’s inner-self (soul, spirit, life-force, essence), psyche and the outer world. Notions of passage, transition (change), duality, reflection, containment and synthesis (fusion) are contemplated and reflected upon.
In mixed mediums, using techniques such as stitching, painting, collage, drawing, printmaking and assemblage, this body of abstract work references, expands and transits into new exploratory directions, sizes and forms, from previous work related to the Book of threads (process journal); it acknowledges and celebrates the spirit ‘creating’ and giving existence to matter.
Added to the generative mix are archetypes and symbols developed over time: the thread ‘tracks’ are a metaphor for transition between states of being, planes of paint, spirit and matter; forms of vessels, grids and planes echo containment within levels; colour resonates with symbology, emotion and memory.
By creating these ‘relationships’, one is ever mindful of reality, illusion, the dynamic forces, energies and thoughts that connect/disconnect all things visible and invisible."
