“We are asleep, our life is a dream. But we wake up, sometimes, just enough to know that we are dreaming.” – Wittgenstein.
As an artist, I keep returning to the central idea from Kandinsky’s seminal text, Concerning the Spiritual in Art: the necessity for an artist’s ongoing search for truth, for meaning, and for the exploration of the human condition.
Pure abstraction is a language through which we can transcend the materialistic realities, and find the silence and the sublime space, to explore our own inner landscapes. My paintings are made with the intention of creating such a sense of space, and to invite the viewer to converse within.
This body of work is about the liminal state between sleep and wakefulness; a state in which the subconscious is most prominent, and our deepest yearnings and fears come to light.
