Made From Stars
This is a collection of paintings that began in a state of flow. I didn't have an initial idea, they just naturally evolved. I began with layers of paint in a variety of colours and only stopped adding more colour, pattern and texture when the time felt right. Some have taken on a collage effect in paint, with the human figures seeming to be stencilled on. The animal portraits all became so dark that I decided to create a cosmic, starry scene from them. All of the central figures appear as transparent forms made from stars. I feel that they symbolise the connection we have to the universe and everything in it. They hint at the energy we all have inside that shines a light through modern life's darkness, chaos and confusion. They remind the viewer that we are all the same, we are all made from stars.
