“Journey-Lines unravel on the canvas. Pathways change colour. Unfolded buildings represent thoughts, ideas, and emotion. Reflections are shown as many faceted stones. The canvas is a body where miniature figures from the imagination of sleep step forward and reach for the sun and stars of realisation. Moons and dreams light the way. Layers bring clarity where new forms can be found.”
