  • Was inspired to go beyond the routine ‘diptych’ format* and created an artist book format with inserted pages and joined altogether.
  • Threads, vessels, layers and colours here form part of my archetypal expressionist symbolism.

*Note ~ Gallery closes two worked-on hinged panel boards with a wax seal, are hung and ready for audience to open and reveal the ‘hidden treasures’ on opening night. Some works have extra surprises like vouchers enclosed within them.

The cover colours

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.”
