These works draw on an ongoing fascination of presenting a liberal state of the human consciousness intertwined with subterranean thought. The work itself, an existential pursuit, serves as a reminder that life is a constantly moving force and parallels the act of creativity itself. Working directly from the well of my own existence, cutting, tearing, sifting, constructing and deconstructing images from books, magazines or photos, images enter and leave the subconscious.
Open daily 10am - 4pm, from 10 November to 13 December. Entry is FREE!
