“For going out, I found, was really going in.” — John Muir
My contemplative and creative practices mirror an intrinsic link between my internal and external journeys. Living in multiple countries across four continents, my professional career led me to encounter firsthand the suffering and resilience of those living in poverty. I sought time in nature, allowing beauty to soothe my spirit and clear my mind. My long-term meditation practice offers a similar experience of spaciousness found through silent encounter, attentive observation and keen awareness.
My art-making is an exploration of perception and an inquiry into its visual essence. I synthesize discipline with spiritual connection, and restraint with exaltation. Referencing practices of Modernist artists Agnes Martin, Josef Albers and Sol Le Witt, I too engage with geometry and repetition.
Using self-imposed parameters of time and place I create abstract images composed of color and form. My constructions serve my own exploration of perspective, while inviting others to open their senses to new perceptions. My intention is to reflect the boundlessness of our inner and outer landscapes. To achieve what Gerhard Richter deems the capacity of art, “to be the highest form of hope”.
