The Virtual Galleries
Within this virtual Exhibition Space you will find my paintings, drawings (works on paper), digital artwork, sculptures, photos, articles and books. New artwork will be added as it gets created, so this space will become an ever expanding portfolio. I will also be writing articles about my process and ideology along with thoughts about what inspires me, in my arts practice. The practice or the action of creating has great interest to me. To quote Paul Klee “The art of mastering life is the prerequisite for all further forms of expression, whether they are paintings, sculptures, tragedies, or musical compositions.” And so I learn to express my art by living my life, which includes my relationships to people, things and places around me.
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 will never look on myself or the world the same again.
What’s The Artwork About?
My artwork draws from A Course In Miracles it’s inspiration, which questions my beliefs and ideas that keep me bound and limited. What comes out may start with a digital sketch or some research on the net or perhaps just a single line from The Course. 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 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 exposing alternate perspectives and breaking up the picture plane which represents alternate spaces/time. Kandinsky would suggest that these “alternate realities” 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 Art practice or my experiences of A Course In Miracles.
Can I Purchase The Artwork?
All of my Artwork, except those in “The Archive”, are available to purchase. Just use the PURCHASE ART link at the top of the site. I have tried to make the process as simple as possible. Prices will change as demand grows, to better show the value of your investment. So when work gets sold I will archive it.
