Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

Soft Blue Field is a minimal piece that evokes a sense of peacefulness and unity. The canvas is lightly textured which gives a tactility and sculptural quality; an invitation to touch. The blue calms the nervous system while triggering creativity and contemplation. There is a feeling of infinity and space. The surface comprises countless lines, flecks and marks which altogether create vibrating tapestry of ultramarine, violet and sky blue.

For me painting is an energising and enlightening experience. My painting style has been influenced by my meditation practice. Over the years, meditation has allowed me to experience reality within myself. Meditation has helped me become conscious of subtle sensations in my body and how these sensations are intimately connected with my mind. This body/mind experience fascinates me. Experiencing my true reality feels meaningful and has given me a sense of peace and purpose. In an effort to express and share these experiences with others, I have developed a personal painting style. I describe my work as monochromatic energy fields comprised of a mass of moving particles, lines and waves of colour. Not unlike the reality within. I understand that it is impossible to express the intangible using a tangible medium such as paint, gesso, sand and canvas... but I love the challenge.
