Dancing in the Shadows and Dreaming of the Light (2019)
To be whole, to be all of it, life, agony, pleasure, reality, fantasy, all of it.
Let me taste the whole of life.
Freedom to give pleasure and to take it away,
Let me never shirk from indignation at moral discrepancies and crossings of the line.
Words are sacred, aesthetic wonder and adoration, sacred.
Beauty of common purpose when faced with cowardice and sanctified kneelings down before the unnameable and the unthinkable.
And if I ever forget who I truly am let it be no common heralder, warning me of my imminent loss.
Let it be only a true friend.
Every waking moment since birth is an aesthetic experience for me.
My eyes search out harmony of colour, form and line, of shadow and light.
I am forever chasing my ideal of balancedness and harmony, a perfection of blended forms, a
convergence of line, visually, even in music and everyday experience.
A place where difference is real and the coming together of disparate personalities, perfection.
All my paintings are created while in the momentary state of inspiration.
There is no planning or preparation of any kind.
That is not to say they have no message, but rather the structure, the meaning, the colour
schemes all arise from the deepest part of myself, from the ubiquitous ‘I’.
That said, I am a person that loves ancientness and takes great joy in pondering the unknown,
for it is there that the magic of creativity comes alive.
