Other works in the show ‘ Magnetic Deviation’ and ‘Earth spirits’ encompass themes of time, geomancy, shamanism and renewal that honour the self, through a sacred connection with nature.  The ‘Cedria’ (peiv) series continues an exploration into the healing qualities of plant materials.  In Greek, resin means flow – the tears given off from the sweat of the wood and the resin acts as a healing poultice to protect the tree.  Similarly, in ‘Shaman’, hessian used to wrap and heal a dying tree is unwrapped and now embodies the human potential for rejuvenation and the spirit of the tree.

The Earth is my Witness

I am inspired by the rhythms of nature, with its cycles of birth, life, death, and renewal and 'The Earth is my Witness' was a homage to this elemental connection.   It was only when the Buddha touched the earth that he gained the power to see the endless cyclical process that all creatures go through, and that the nirvana he had been searching for was directly available here and now.  The most accessible pathway to presence is through the senses - vibration crosses sensory thresholds in being simultaneously palpable, audible and visible. In my installations I often use the frequencies of the earth, planets and sacred mantras to change perceptions and heighten awareness.
