About

This body of work is exploring the tradition of visionary art which has its origins dating back to the earliest records or mark making by humans in prehistoric cave painting. Drawing on inspiration from the mythology surrounding shamanism, entheogens and mystical experiences involving nature, the divine and contact with divinity.
Dependent on the time in history and place it occurs, the visionary mystical experience can be either persecuted and feared or revered and celebrated. It does provide humans with direct contact and personal experience with divinity outside of the framework of organised religion and the ideology attached to them.
Like the visionary and mystical experience, these paintings aim to describe connectivity, boundary dissolution, energy flow and dynamic creativity. These states of consciousness are like a river we can chose to gaze upon or fully immerse ourselves into. This river of consciousness is always flowing and sits just outside of our ordinary perception for those that have the inclination, bravery and yearning to discover it.
