Art, Life and Other Things: Transient States 4–26 October 2014

Art, Life and Other Things: Transient States is a comment on the human condition in the contemporary settings of the arts and philosophy. The paintings juxtapose the semi-abstract and the figurative, the textured and smooth surfaces, the light and dark areas to create a dialogue and platform for contemplation, solitude and repose.

I am interested in transposing the Chinese painting idea of poetry, painting and calligraphy to art, life and other things in the arrangement of leaves against the semi abstract sky, the textured and the smooth surfaces and brush marks. In my art, life and other things, I am drawn to the traditional and contemporary Chinese philosophies – art is life is art.
