This ongoing series of work evolved out of my travels and residency in Australia. It is a diary - a visual narrative of meditative and transformational experiences. I have used the meditative and dream states as a source of inspiration and imagery. It is informed by metaphysical interests - sacred geometry and other symbolic languages - and my interpretation of archetypal aboriginal imagery.
Symbols, and the associated 5 elements along with other coded symbols, patterning and layered colour are infused into the work to support a theme of non-linear time and multi-dimensional realities.
The feeling of a strong connection with the red earth energies awoke a desire in me to share this with others. Just as aboriginal artists paint their own dreamings strongly connected to the earth and cosmic creative energies, some of my paintings are "maps" of my own journey dreamings.
