Creating the Postcards Artist Statement

Creating the Postcards: Artist Statement

When I make art I do a lot of exploration with ideas, materials, techniques…

I ask what colours; what adaptations; what can be appropriated, juxtaposed?????

I hunt and gather from past memories and collections, visual diaries and photographs re-reading with current perspectives mixing the tenses.  Meaning is layered and synthesised to form new meaning...

In Postcards of the Cross I appropriate official checkpoints, quickly and almost carelessly stamped documents, post marks, snap shots of time that express deep truths witnessed, a  person passing through, not stopping but now changed, altered, different with the need to message.

It really does become a prayerful process.
