“Surrendering “the self” to the sensory elements of sound, colour and form is at the core of my work.  In my current practice I explore this through interpreting ritual, mysticism and states of transcendence. I have a particular interest in iconography, sacred art and architecture, and how one relates to these artifacts and edifices on a conscious and subconscious level.”
