ATWOMAN - SOLO SHOW 2021
21 June to 17 July 2021
Michaelhouse Centre, Cambridge
Open everyday, from 10 am to 5 pm
I invite you on a journey into the heart of the emotional exploration of the 2020-21 lockdown, from light to darkness. These paintings depict my meditative experiences in the non-dual tradition of Khasmir, when the perception of the self is not limited to the projections of the mind. In this deep meditative state, my sense of being a separate individual merges into the intimate feeling of being one with all things. This experience is cosmic, colourful, and timeless. Often it creates space to explore raw feelings, from joy to rage, as well as deep depression.
I use natural sponges collected on the beach, and paint without eye correction for my strong near-sightedness, to prevent the return of the sense of separation and keep true to the meditative experience. When I paint, I listen repeatedly to a piece of music that resonates with the vibration of the experience. I invite you to listen to soundtracks whilst contemplating the paintings (scan the QR code on the label and click on the link on the painting), and to immerse in your own experience of sound and image.
