Nearly Christmas and life is busy. Venturing out to shop is a brave thing to do. So many people.
An article about my work which appeared in the XL magazine has been published online. Very exciting. You can read the article and make a comment too.
I am really quite passionate about the connection beteen art and the potential for different kinds of conversations which may lead to different ways to look at Peace Building. I have thought a lot about the subtle difference between personal conversations and intimate ones. Many personal conversations seem intimate because recounting personals events and details does take people outside their comfort zone. However, talking about feelings rather than details is where I believe intimacy occurs. This is where art can play its magic. Just like the spiral in my painting above where the outside seems to collide with the inside.
