''These days my art making explores perception through the process of things - a synchronicity and dialogue between the inner and outer.



For me this process involves both distillation and exploration, as if moving back and forth between development and abstraction, ​between form and no form,

observing, ready for the mysterious to reveal itself.



I keep finding parallels between this process and meditation. That the balance between being present and letting go, rests at the heart of both'.

CREATIVE PROCESS

Sidd's artistic language involves various media and approaches. Already in Art School he sought a multi-media context, opting for Theatre Design in order to fulfill this curiosity and interest. Currently his exploration involves the plastic arts. However they are constantly influenced by his experiences and passion for spatial arts too.

'To some degree all art is about humanity’s search - it’s longing
for a transcendental quality through inspiration and expression.
True fulfilment comes not through goals but through the process of life.
As an artist I find this experiencing arises
when inspiration and expression are in one flow.'
