I am experimenting with what I like to call ‘inner art’. I have always been intrigued with abstract art and especially art that explores patterns, sacred geometry, space, shapes and colour.
“This series is going to be a reflection of how I feel inside, what is desperate to come out.”
But, professionally, I paint more traditional art and cater to ‘the market’. This series is going to be a reflection of how I feel inside, what is desperate to come out. Don’t get me wrong, I love painting the things I do, it’s just sometimes I want to ‘break free’ of the conformity and do something purely for myself.
“Whether we are looking through a microscope at the inner workings of our bodies or whether we are looking through a telescope at the cosmos — I can see a notable link.”
The colours and shapes are all a mix of the inner space coming out into the material world. I love the theory that we are a microcosm for the macrocosm, as within so without.
Our bodies are made up of omni-central atoms, everything is circular and has the sacred geometry formula. Whether we are looking through a microscope at the inner workings of our bodies or whether we are looking through a telescope at the cosmos — I can see a notable link.
The Universal Unity Theory — for me — is the certainty that every one and every thing is connected on some level and I hope this comes across in my art.
‘A leap of faith’ (painting above) represents the push into the unknown. This is something I have been battling with recently and decided to express it through painting.
I want to be free to do what I want, paint what I want, say what I want — a leap into integrity, I suppose. Wouldn’t the world just be a wonderful place if we could all express ourselves freely and without judgement or fear?
What are your thoughts on freedom of expression and the fear of ‘exposing’ yourself?
