The new year gives chance for new beginnings, but the first task of the year is to clean things away,sweep the floors and re arrange, all these things give my mind time to organise and think, to consider… whats next?
I have lots of ideas, some of which I will follow up, experiment with, with varied success, but all with gained understanding. Forming a direction is about so many things, its about learning new techniques, exploring form and colour, but its also, and maybe most importantly for me, about trying to understand and see the world around me with alittle more clarity, to go back in time to being a child who sees a flower for the first time, in wonder and curiosity.
Taking life long inspiration from my favourite artists,coupled with the symbolism of connections with one another and between objects,the tension and harmony of life and the wonderful visual and tactile world we live in.
