Fine Art Prints and Patterns
As we go around our busy lives, there’s nothing more comforting than decorating the intimate space of our homes with beautiful images. To find soothing images that reflect our inner-most states is more and more vital to our well being and sense of peace. My paintings, illustrations and digital art prints are designed in the wisdom of sacred geometry and traditional patterns. They encompass the earthly roots of our ancestral designs brought afresh into a modern context. Perfect companions which soothe and bring a calmness to the busy world.
Much of my art begins in one form and is tranmuted into another through the creative process. I draw on elements of batik, block-printing and collage, and use them within the digital environment.
Here is a vision insight through my recent digital mixed-media, or new media art print explorations.
The origins and beginnings of this folio grew from my fascination with the celtic tradition. I spent many a happy hour in the Archaeology Dept. drawing room as an undergraduate, exploring the treasure-trove of ancient artifacts, and making detailed images.
Inspired by elements ranging between the Books of Kells and Lindisfarne, inspired by the gothic architecture of europe and the art deco uses of projective ornamentation, these paintings are all hand-drawn and coloured. They are all in private collections
I find that the deeper I go into this exploration through my artwork, the more i understand that there is some further dimension to discover.
And standing here, at the edge of the world; awestruck at the sheer hugeness and incomprehensible nature of that which we do not know, I feel really blessed to have started to unravel my calling in this Mortal Coil.
In essence, my work is about capturing a glimpse of what Lichtenstein called the “unspeakable’, and bringing it back in a form of art. To me, it holds a liminality which draws me further into it, as if by design…
Experience the Art
Journey over to the fine art gallery and have a look at some more of my work.
Each piece is a work of dedication and love, as i step closer to the essence of what I’m trying to capture
To see art in context gives a referential perspective.
Maybe it’s a bit like climbing a mountain to see the lay of the land. And just maybe, art somehow fulfils our journey to that mountain-top of our own Inner Landscape (?)
