About The Artwork

This work was inspired by the luminosity theme. There is therefore a slight glitter effect in the pink neon background. The viewer is free to read their own interpretation into the work. I have written some thoughts of my own below. The Deities: Neptune and Shree Laxmi (Venus) emerged in this with Venus represented by the pink colour and the sea shells. She is fertile and abundant which is shown in Her pregnant state. Neptune's power (His trident) is with Her, even though His form is not physically present with Her in this depiction. This work is a homage to my Motherland (Africa). There are three in total that I created in this batch. There is a place in my country (South Africa), where the daisies bloom and where a giant footprint is to be found. Yogis call this as the footprint of Shree Laxmi (Venus), when She was born (emerged from the ocean), the first place that She set foot is this sacred spot in Namaqualand where the Giant Footprint is found. This is just a small salute and tribute to that beautiful gift that She left to all the people of this land.

The ultimate objective for me to is create an outlet for all the creative energy which lies within me and to create work which will be sublime, timeless and joy - giving. I love the idea of super-imposing one image onto another, a little like the Khoi San did in their rock paintings. Simply painting over an existing painting. The signs, symbols and messages which they portrayed in their work, has inspired me. I also love incorporating many symbols in my work and sometimes I try to re-paint works and images that I have seen or created in my dreams. Dreamwork, understanding numbers, omens and symbolism has been a lifelong passion for me. Meditation and connecting with Source for me is the foundation of all creativity. I am currently in the late stages of my BECOMING and enfolding as an artist and as a spiritual being in a human experience. Much of the earlier stages were first unsure, then a blocked artist for many years and then a journey upstream, not feeling worthy of calling myself a true artist as my work was very classical and not very modern / contemporary. It was my spiritual journey that really taught me about art. My teachers meant well, but the system of critiquing an art work in the presence of the artist is what really destroyed my inner artist. I have therefore found the solitary path to be most useful as art is in essence borne from inner work. With time I was able to shed the fear which was really like a prison. The inner healing which creating art and writing brought me resulted in a metamorphoses and a re-birth. I re-invented myself and re-named myself and let go of all the work which I had produced under my birth name. My work is now more playful and more about breaking the rules, yet following my own aesthetics. I have found a fondness of collage lately, however, I acknowledge the fact that the creative force within seeks to express itself in many different ways, media and manner.
