STILLNESS IN PROCESS
‘Yugen' is a Japanese word describing the mysterious quality surrounding everything, to which our intuition responds.
Nature of spirit is an underlying theme in much of my art making. Initially this inquiry was part of my inner process, Now I feel that any difference between spirit and form is just a relative one, So I look to make them synonymous in my painting.
In this way I can empathise with the lifework of Mark Rothko. I feel his enquiry into myth, then Logos and finally a pure abstraction, exemplifying his inner journey as well as just the reductive process to abstraction.’
