Sutra

Handmark Gallery, Hobart, 25 February – 23 March 2011

Over the last two years I have developed a way of painting in which the paint has come to resemble thread. The paintings themselves contain many of my thoughts about cultural continuity and inheritance, and about memory, both personal and cultural. Repetition has emerged as an important element.

Some of the paintings have found their themes in the natural environment, some in patterns taken from nature but expressed in ways associated with the domestic interior or personal adornment. Others are more abstract.

The marks from which the paintings are constructed form a personal calligraphy, a wordless communication of philosophical intent, as I follow the thread of being, over time.
