Evolving. Emerging. Origins.
At times, for me, the experience of painting is an attempt to visually articulate what is intuited but not fully grasped. Painting not what I know, but rather what is unknown.
In this exhibit, “Surfacing”, I invite you to be suspended for a moment in visual narratives beyond words.
Cerulean Emergence I, II, II is a visual exploration of the inner world. The place where I reside in what is both a familiar and unfamiliar interior landscape. A held space for presence. Who am I and who am I becoming?
These are the ageless ponderings that linger, unresolved and suspended. It is a kind of emergence – already fully present and yet still evolving. Using colour and texture to express openness and vulnerability, the images that emerge invite the viewer to explore inner truths.
