New States of Alignment
Sometimes, when I am unsure what to paint, I walk with no defined destination. I follow predetermined paths and ‘desire’ paths. This is, in a sense, an attempt to have a two-way responsive interaction with an energetic environment.
We can be aware of our existence within two simultaneous landscapes – the conscious, daily solidity, and the deepest terrains and swells of the Unconscious. This can be perceived physically, energetically, psychically.
There is a human ability to construct realities, and to overlay the physical landscape with mental mapping. This creates ‘conceptualizations of consciousness’ which can take form in art, myth, symbol, or structure.
These interactions of mutual consciousness, between our cognition, sensory awareness, and the indeterminate world become significant reference points for active perception.
However clear or disconcerting, these multifunctional connections are a primary stimulus for painting. My art can be a translation of these meeting points.
When I am painting and drawing an interdependence develops between my activity; my gestures and decision processes; the materiality and behaviour of media and surface; the subject (whether predetermined or evolving); and unseen phenomena.
These marks then become a language. Signs, fields and energies of form.
I am searching for a sense of the embodied within the activism of painting, within the image, and within the places that pictures occupy. This takes form in the sensations of space; in dimensional journeys; in the reality of shadows; and in the hermetic haven of art.
