New Work

Within And Without


Since developing  chronic illness and pain, I have sought new ways of being and of understanding my altered state.  The answers for me are always within the landscape.

During a residency in a remote village on the edge of a fjord in Iceland, the mountains across the fjord were a constant presence in my days and nights.  The fog and mist would roll in a never-ending dance of camouflage and revelation.  The landscape was amorphous, only revealing itself if you are prepared to wait and observe.

Observing this dance required stillness and patience, allowing me to exist in a space that was both within and without.  I was able to understand the shifts and changes in my internal landscape, where mind and body and indivisible and move towards a place of acceptance.
