Joy in the Presence a path in peace 2015-

Meditation Books.

This on going project began 1.1.15. One artwork has been produced and added every day since that date. There are now over 1800 in the piece ( and counting ). 

   The piece explores our understanding of time and the precious nature of the 'moment'. Although the viewer and artist ‘lived through’ the same time frame from January 2015 to the present, they are now able to view history as a series of parallel days, jumping from one day to the next in any order they prefer as if they were time travelling! It also explores the idea of ‘active space’- the time one ‘sleeps’ and carries out other activities between the creation of the component images of the artwork. The artworks are actually 'moment markers'. It is an attempt to offer a definition of this ‘active space’ through the combination of imagery shown and consequently reveal what cannot be seen by the eye alone.

Through meditating on the images a deeper understanding is offered.

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.
