TRANS-PERSONATION in DIALOGUE with NATURE
Digital photography, watercolour painting
Every limb is a branch,
sweet lymph flowing through each capillary,
breath moving the spirit of One
We celebrate life as it flows through us
Over the last five years of my journey a crescent call to melt into the depth of nature's truth has been guiding me to research and experiment through herbal medicine and meditational practices, incorporating teachings from different ancestral traditions into contemporary living in western society. To life's inherent wisdom I dedicate my work.
A dream-like symbolism is infused into the layers of the images, they ask for a slow reading, an invitation to pause and find meaning in weaving connections between the picture that is created amongst the whole.
Beginning at the question “How can all forms of being find a dialogue that sustains balance on a common ground of presence?” the project proposes a voyage through the essence of relational cosmogony, uniting the interlaced aspects of creation into one animistic and fluid consciousness. Reflected in the understanding of life as sacred under all forms of observation, the acceptance of the basic principles of earthly living are carried by a wider belonging to a feminine breathing all-encompassing existence. As the perspective of relationship expands, the project furthermore explores photography in its role of art as passage of emotion and exchanging medium to converse with the environment and its inhabitants. The installation acts as a map of relational living between the visible and the invisible, by approaching the value of ceremonial living in the ordinary and simple, to reinstall a spiralling and cyclical form of understanding. The ordinary transcends the modern assuming a supernatural and oneiric character, which transforms into a playful celebration of life.
