I continue to find inspiration through Eastern philosophy, meditation and mathematics; particularly in Zen Buddhism where opposites signify one another and repetition of a thought, word or action is used as a tool for meditation.
Repetition is a significant feature of my work whereby subtle changes occur within series of repetitive marks or shapes. This year I have used the sacred symbol of the triangle and cut my woodblocks to the gentle meditative universal sound of Om.
In a surprising departure from my monochrome work of previous years, I have been drawn to using reds, blues and gold. These rich colours seem to reflect those found in temples of worship.
