Saints and Sinners
In Saints and Sinners I take biblical and mythological subjects and stories, concerning sacrifice and violence, to visually translate and personify them from my unique experience and sensibility.
A peasant British poet, John Clare, remarked that, “to lose your land is to lose your language, and to lose your language is to lose your mind.” In Landscapes the life force of my exiled body and mind seek expression in a guise of metaphor, and nourishing and sensuous soul experiences derived from nature.
In harrowing times, swaying in the interplay of ego and eco collective and personal crises, I use the surface of my work to gently address the (internal) world to the unspeakable loss, using tenderness rather than violence of desire, to map the geography of my exiled being.
