Life Journey Leaf No.1
There is a type of beauty that lies modestly beneath the surface of things that inspires me to create. A single, perfect fallen leaf at my studio doorstep ignited this body of work.
Within this five-stemmed leaf, I saw not only a symbol of the five seasons, but also a symbol of our life journey and the many cycles that take place in our lives. I saw in it, something of the divine, something of a guide.
These paintings are the result of contemplation, of introspection, and the willingness to be receptive to nature's guidance in my creative process. The surface of the paper was built up by layers of paint and energetic and spontaneous mark making. In this way I wanted to capture the history and many cycles our lives go through. Each leaf was then painted over in a delicate, deliberate and meditative manner with each of the five seasonal colours represented within the leaf. The balance between both these approaches echoes and invites us to embrace the cycles of chaos and calm in our own life journeys.
My hope is that this painting offers you the viewer, a way to experience nature in a new way, to love it, and to see it as a positive symbol for your own life journey. Learn more about this body of work and the inspiration behind the process HERE.
