Essentially these works are tangible meditations. They are process orientated and derived from the Hindu tradition of Japa, the repetition of a mantra. The process relies on a repetitive single point of concentration which allows access to inner space and stillness. Focusing on the breath transforms a time-bound process into one of timelessness. This imprints an energy in the work that encourages contemplation and invites the viewer to go within.
These works are always white. White holds a yang energy and is expansive; it represents purity and is considered a revealer of truth. Lighting is important to the pieces as it affects how the works are “seen”. In natural light some allow a full but subtle spectrum of the rainbow to be witnessed, while others create a depth in shadow that can transcend a simple sheet of paper.
The use of sacred shapes, geometrical ratios and subtle energy patterns enable the works to resonate, vibrate and energetically affect the space they occupy. The seed or “mantra” is derived from the intersection of two circles, a symbol of spirit, which creates the sacred geometrical Vesica Pisces. As a point of concentration it is a space which holds infinite possibilities.
