How would I describe my work?
The work is abstract, spiritual, intrinsic and may be labelled as Remodernist and Archetypal Expressionism. Using multiple/mixed mediums, connections, relationships and unity are explored through visual language elements, symbology, between one’s inner-self (soul/spirit/life-force/essence), psyche and outer world. Notions of passage, transition/change, duality, reflection, containment, synthesis/fusion are contemplated and reflected upon.

Trans-Bound (Detail)
Medium: Acrylic, threads, rice paper on canvas.
Brief Description: A subtle layer of gold threads has been stitched on to represent spirit passage and mediation between the transient forces and one's reality.
