“The art of mastering life is the prerequisite for all further forms of expression, whether they are paintings, sculptures, tragedies, or musical compositions.” Paul Klee.
What’s The Artwork About?
My artwork draws from A Course In Miracles it’s inspiration, which opened my eyes and assisted in Transforming how I look on myself and the world. My experiences and understanding of the teachings of A Course In Miracles, have had a profound effect on me and the way I think.
I like to start a new Painting by Asking. The question is an internal one; “How Can I Represent THAT Idea?” Or something like that. In the right circumstances I may see the work in it’s completed state. Or it may start with a digital sketch or some research on the net or through finding correlations between “THAT Idea” and Science or music or A Course In Miracles. The activity of re-viewing or seeing again, affords me the opportunity to find a way to express something quite complex and translated it.
This virtual exhibition space is a perfect platform to show how that is happening for me. I like to research an idea and look at it from has many angles as possible. Then I try to break it down into as simple a symbol that will best represent that idea. The use of colour and many principles of dynamic symmetry, are used as a facade or entry point. From there I use symbols, Colour and recurring Motifs to entice you into a broader conversation.
With satellite mapping, global positioning, mobile technology and social networking, we have access to the worlds ideas as never before. I enjoy exploring alternate perspectives and breaking up the picture plane which represents alternate spaces/time. Kandinsky would suggest that these “alternate spaces” are more concrete than the one we see with our eyes.
This virtual exhibition space displays my artwork and shares interesting articles and books that have inspired my artwork. I have added visual diaries to show the process of how some of my artworks have evolved. New artwork and articles are being added all the time so watch this space. I encourage you to participate in a critique or comment on any of the work or question me in any regard to my Arts practice or my experiences of A Course In Miracles.
