My overall vision which linked this series to my previous work, was on the theme of form vs emptiness. Where the operations and processes let the forms self organize themselves into dynamic expressions. I was looking for simplicity and refinement, but also art that had areas of intensity that seemed to merge into the void.
Creating art to me is a way of life and a mindset of engagement with the materials, while entering a mindful flow state. I let the work self organise, a process of autogenesis.
It is a practice ,a practice of letting go of expectations and seeing where the work might lead me.
My work connects to postwar abstraction, which became an International movement in the 1950’s. In a sense it’s a recontextualization of the movements main approaches in the hyper-mediated environment of our virtual digital age.
I have synthesised many ideas, approaches and techniques from a wide variety of sources, which include the Zen ink painting traditions of China and Japan.
