Artist Statement

My work explores the sublime through the use of blending colours, and shapes in harmony with the Divine Proportion. The feature of the stained glass window represents the light of truth and evokes religious ideology in connection to the Divine Light. My work further references the image-laden culture which drives our everyday world, from pixels on a screen to the ubiquitous use of imagery in advertisement to selfies, and the way in which these images are organised in our world, either physically or digitally, often forming a grid, or pattern, within which windows to other worlds and perspectives can be seen. The effects of refracted light and blurred colours, remind the viewer that our vision of today and of the future is foggy and malleable, and as such the likenesses of window panes in my work reference man’s attempts at peering into the future. My work is an attempt to aesthetically bring together the luxurious styles of Art Deco and Art Nouveau and the simplicity of Minimalism and attempts to introduce detail and draughtsmanship, while searching for a sublime universal truth through a culmination of global aesthetics, particularly that of the East and West.
