|My work is concerned primarily with UNITY. All material things are held together by the cohesive attraction of one electron for another, and this attractive force exists on all levels of creation from gravity to love. When this principle is reflected in the work it has an enlightening result on both the artist and the viewer by going someway towards reintegrating the psyche.Man’s own creative powers can be seen as a version (or re-version) of that impulse expressed in the first act of creation and as that act was one of dissection/severance, ‘and he separated light from darkness’ Genesis 1’. In effect – ‘The big bang’ – from the ONE issued the many, (this myth is common to all religions) I believe it behoves the resulting parts (namely ourselves) to make our creative act one of reintegration. To make the disparate parts into a cohesive whole by reconciling the opposites, - intellect and intuition, head and heart, an alchemists marriage of male and female. With this unification of the male and female principles, I attempt to create an indivisible wholeness with contrasting elements (a kind of complex yin and yang) dark/light, curvilinear/rectilinear, warm/cold etc.The process is one of elimination. For it is the discarding, (the choice of which takes many years) by applying one’s objective editorial capabilities to one’s subjective intuitions, leaving out all but the most essential for maximum effectiveness. (Simplicity – less means more; the wheel relies on the hole; the window it’s space; sound on silence; what is, is defined by what is not; the thing by the no-thing). It is the residue that counts.|
