The pre-Socratic Greek philosopher Heraclitus provides the most famous image of process metaphysics.
‘It is not possible, he says, ‘to step twice into the same river’
Process philosophy invites us to look at longer stretches of time, blurred boundaries and connected relations.
An integral part of my Artwork, is rooted in my interest in philosophical ideas/ suggestions, but not limited to themes around: ‘the self’ – ‘consciousness’, and currently, ‘collective consciousness’.
My Art making process starts from an inspired philosophical statement, which then is underpinned by current, local or global Climate, Socio-Economic-Political, secondary issues/ challenges. I am drawn to issues/ challenges that allow me to express and explore connections, that support the philosophical suggestion.
All artworks created stands independently, but also each form an integral part of the whole body of work, that flows from one into the other.
