Assumption I, Lost in
Ascension V, “
I am currently exploring the idea of ‘journey’; through space and time; toward a destination or a spiritual awakening; as the traveller or the onlooker. This is being expressed through creating a series of paintings examining how the space around us defines our movement, by highlighting the architectural features that we pass by on foot and pass over visually as they seem mundane and unremarkable. Indeed, we can only perceive our own movement by the recognition of the inert ‘watching’ structures that surround us and that we will ultimately leave behind. I seek to re-examine their apparent banality and invoke a celebration of the ordinary. By glorifying the unloved and unvalued markers in the landscape of the journey, the journey itself is enriched.
