Mythic Spaces

Cloud Inversion, mixed media on paper. 25″ by 39″

By ‘Mythic’ I am referring to a suggestion of creation myth that I identify with in connection with these landscape-esque paintings. They come initially from a desire to express something that is experienced both in ‘awe-inspiring’ or dramatic landscapes as well as within myself – to do with imagery that might come from the psyche.

The paintings focus on the feeling of being on the edge of something – perhaps the ending or beginning of the world or creation, giving a sense of awe or expectation, as well as of expression of a world that is in a perpetual state of becoming, and imbued with a vital energy.

They are also very much about an exploration in the mark-making process, as well as the kinds of shapes and symbols that sometimes re-occur. Within the latter can be found disks (perhaps plates of information?), waves etc.
