The psyche, the aspect of the self, comprising of the mind, the body and the spirit, have been at the center of my artistic practice. Often, during moments of heightened emotion we are reminded of the connection between these aspects, how each contributes to a whole. This body of work is an exploration of those moments, in turn creating an introspection of the self, and reconnecting the body to the mind.
Through combination of abstraction and representation, my images are rendered to reflect back on these moments of heightened emotion. The use of colour, layering, texture and mixed media correspond each to respective emotion. Ideas of stress, anxiety, loneliness and euphoria are among some of those explored in this series. By conveying these moments, I am re-establishing a physical connection to them and to my mind, effectively expressing the self as a connected whole.
