Body of Work: Inner Sanctum
Inner Sanctum, is a collection that was born at a time that is what we’d all agree is unprecedented. We’re living in the ‘time of coronavirus’, amidst a one in a hundred year global pandemic. For most of us, life now to what is was is unrecognisable, with both unforeseen benefits and undeniable challenges.
This time for me has been consumed with drastic changes to my life both personally and professionally, and all the while I’ve been pregnant with my first baby. It’s been a time of extreme paradox and polarity, and yet with a paintbrush in hand, I’ve found some sense and contentment as I explore what it is to be in this time, sitting quietly in my studio.
Pushing paint around various mediums exploring balance and colour with a sense of softness and a quieter, contemplative state of mind. These pieces lead the imagination to a more mystical place with their intriguing metallic and iridescent accents and sweeping gestures.
My hope for this body of work is to bring you that same sense of content, intrigue and mystery that they bring me. Calling you back to meditate and ponder, consider it again from an alternate angle, discovering another magic moment with each sitting. It is those feelings that compromise the comfort of the Inner Sanctum.
