Ophelia

SOLD

Ophelia is accompanied by text to a personally significant poem,
…….be quiet now. I am your witness still and tonight your comfort.
Whatever is not now is meaningless, it cannot intercept us. All else
is dust in cycle. So being here disembeds the remains…..
It also contains text to Shakespeare’s Hamlet. This art piece is particularly vital in that it captures an insight into my psyche, my breath, my life, my soul.

Honey Like Venus’ Quilt

04

Oil and mixed media on canvas

605mm x 505mm

2001

Unframed

SOLD

A love story, inspired by my poem written with the same title. Of memories, suspended and drifting way out deep into the cosmos. This piece is magical and precious in that it captures an immeasurable time-locked sentiment, a surreal account of a night flight into dreams of passion and yearning. The honeyed dreams, a lifetime, or was it a decade ago, branded deep beneath Venus’ quilt. Interpret as you will.

Seirena

Oil on canvas

1050mm x 880mm

2001

Framed

SOLD

Seirena symbolises the historic nature of the Seirenes (Sirens).
These sea-nymphs had the power of charming whomever heard their sweet, alluring song.
It is the deeply sad yet darkly romantic aspect of these mythological sisters that I seek to portray in this piece.
