Research as a journey of discovery
Out of curiosity for matter and process art arises.
Materials used are frequently out of the natural world.
An underlying ecological and/or spiritual motive is often at the base.
Nowadays with the global warming, natural disasters and other ecological issues, people face many dilemmas. External conflicts cause trauma. The pain brings confusion.
At the same time not enough people are aware of the lethal impact all these external stresses cause on the peoples themselves.
By drawing the viewer into my work, I hope to give them some reprieve from the external pressures of nowadays life. Showing vulnerability and curiosity from my part, might give encouragement to the viewer to show the same. Curiosity might guide them to their own wonders happening within themselves again. Who knows it might encourage them to have a different look towards their own positioning in the world. Is it bringing them closer to their own goals or further away? They might see a flickering of what could be changed within this. Everybody has a choice in this as little as it might be. I am aware this is a delicate process to go through. Yet it is feasible. As things change internally, things externally will follow.
