My art is a search for a visual language that expresses the intangible world. I investigate how spiritual experience and art making can be linked, and how artworks might reveal the experience of synchronicity.
My practice explores the way intuition and spiritual experience can be used in the creation of artworks. Using video, painting, random process and macroscopic photography the works seek to use abstraction to embrace the idea that the emergent and temporal world can be mirrored through the creative process.
Using video to record temporal paint in process invites the viewer to experience more of the wonder that happens during the painting experience.
In the practice of combining, random process with colour and scale I endeavour to create works which suggest experiences of emerging, beginning, being in creation, becoming and transformation.  Experiences not quite tangible or based in the real world, yet reminiscent of something familiar.
