In the English language, one letter differentiates the words Night and Light, and most beautifully, the M of Moon rests between them…
I am continually in awe of how the relationships between two elements so radically change our experience of them. Whether sound, light, shape, words, animal or human... Coming together is so often far more than remaining apart and separate. Together, things grow and become new.
I Am An Island, Full With Life,
I am alone, and with,
With love, with hope, with joy, with pain,
With all that is to be, become,
The journey lost, the journey won.
When making art I listen to my heart and mind. By heart I mean those qualities that are not easily visible but undeniably felt: my instinct; emotional response; sensitivity; sensory and aesthetic sensibility; the summation of experience into a moment of clarity. When making, this unseen interwoven canvas is corralled by my mind. If I try to make with my mind alone, if art is only concerned with structure, form, and technique, it is inevitably less affecting, connecting, and far less convincing.
