I am interested in how we as humans connect – or fail to – as psychological, spiritual, embodied beings on individual, interpersonal and collective levels.
I explore this in relation to identity and belonging, as well as the interplay between the unconscious and conscious: seemingly irreconcilable yet entwined states of mental functioning which, when placed in conversation, offer possibilities of new perspectives and healing.
My art practice is a form of spiritual practice and I produce work using internally and externally orientated processes. The internal orientation employs self-observation, meditation and intentional dialogue with the unconscious, termed active imagination by Carl Jung. The external orientation focuses on empathic relating.
I work across media – painting, performance, songwriting, amongst others – drawing from a range of disciplines that include psychology (Freudian; Jungian; person-centred), Eastern philosophy and critical theory.
