Journey Through Intimacy 2005-2007

Journey through intimacy explores what happens when you strip away layers of conditioned thought and experiences to reveal knowledge that lies in the quiet moments of contemplative reflection.

It is a journey to the inner voice of stillness to chart an inner landscape to discover an internal mental map.

The collection of works in this exhibition express through a number of connections, themes of our humanity that reveal love, compassion and humility. Whether it is by showing a deaf old lady in a nursing home or a street beggar, if we listen to the quiet still voice during our interaction and remain mindful we connect with our higher self, thus showing the profound inter- connected nature of our existence.

In the hope of getting a little closer to the truth behind our understandings of our world, with a simplicity of thought focused on the themes mentioned earlier ( love, compassion and humility ) we can cleanse our often dense lives of unnecessary clutter that can take us in the direction of finding our own personal freedom.

Could it be that in an external environment where personal freedom is constantly under threat an understanding of our internal geography has ever been more relevant?.

What Did I Do To You

Imbalance in power.

Art is deliverance, even in suffering. But to those outcasts who do not appreciate freedom of thought, art is a crime.

Greatness lies in conception, in the eye, the heart, and the hand of the artist, and not in the geometric dimensions of the work.

Blessed artist, even if your art is one of misfortune, pick up your load and move along on your pilgrimage, following any road.

Georges Rouault.
