Contemporary Artist & Poet.

AS THE VEIL LIFTS

As an artist of sight, I intend to make space for the unseen to be noticed. My art and poetry, in visual stimulation, are driven by a deep passion to articulate God’s unchanging truth from a graceful, pigmented point of view. Through the exploration of colour, form, texture, and words, I wish to curate a mirrored reflection within each piece — a reflection that opens sight to the blemishes of our sins which inhibit the grace our soul thirsts for; the salvation of Jesus Christ. By means of His love and blood we can be made anew. Each piece draws on a biblical message, that advances open breath into an endless source of inspiration and creativity. By painting what He has first laid down with His word; all of nature, the human form, the mind, the heart, the vision, the choices, the light — I, by working in nobility to honour the creation we see before our physical eyes, can feel His presence thriving within me. It is my hope that you, as the viewer/reader, either through my work or outside of it, may also experience a boundless space where the veil gently lifts.

 

My art journey, like all else, is life long. Weaving two worlds into tangible realities, to me, is the northern star. Ever attained, never reached, ever pursued. As the pain revolutionises into strength, the unknown becomes known, and the unseen is made seen, my work, reaching closer piece by piece, lies in sharing what my hands and heart can carry back.

 

It is a story towards self, towards truth, towards holiness, and ultimately towards love. It is a search, a conquer, a deep understanding.

 

A silent one — one that opens to the wonder of today and invites us in.

 

A reminder that we hold the key all along —

To home.

So we do not lose heart. Though our outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day. For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison, as we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal.

2 Corinthians 4:16-18
