The Window: My Little Life
Mixed media (black gesso, acrylic pant, oil pastel, printing) on primed canvas 10x10 cm
As I child I was drawn to the empty space within a picture. Years later, I realised that it is not ‘empty’ but ‘open’ space. It is a void into which I may pour my thoughts, my memories, my imagination, my story, my philosophy and my personality. I use the colour white to depict this void – it is essential to the theory of my work. This void - my space ‘by the window’ may be viewed in terms of non-Euclidean geometry. It is limitless and eternal, a metaphor for multidimensionality and the nonlinearity of space and time. This is not merely a compositional element, but an important part of the philosophy of the work. In my recent work, I open my ‘black square’ step by step to claim my territory or space in the void. This space is subjective, elusive and filled with visual distortions. Within the ‘window’ I share my thoughts upon the meaning of life. Through soft and light layers of paint, viewers may
immerse themselves fragments and suggestions of my memories and drawings. In my ‘open space’ there are no restrictions. Only as my brush touches the canvas, quite magically, do my thoughts and feelings begin to take form.
