I saw you as the Gods were walking. You are the God above and you sat by me and whispered encouragement in my ear. I sat drinking tea, avoiding the one event i had prepared for so long. Painting the destiny of the Gods. As you spoke, i felt transported by some destiny i didn’t know or understand.
My friend is being my Saipeh for this project. She explained to me that Saipeh is Teochew Chinese dialect for Master. She is teaching me how to work with resin. I think these are some of my favourite jewellery pieces of the year. Brown leaves moving as if in the wind, blood tears trying to reach each other. As if a drop of blood is frozen in time, on resin.
Its been really busy for me but now i can catch a breath theres something i’ve been meaning to share with you. These are sketches from my visual diary. Sometimes the ideas make it into large artworks, sometimes they are personal expressions of how i feel that day. This is the latest one. So we can both feel the same energy.
This was an artwork that felt to be part of my unconscious process. A link between the spiritual teacher and the student. A thread, a lifeline of learning, the mystery of connection, karmic ties that lead even into the departing and the afterlife.
I had the most incredible night watching Sigur Ros in Singapore for the first time. They are incredible live. I got back at nearly midnight and my brain is not working from all that amazing music. I think i haven’t slept. This is my own language. Its a prayer of protection and peace which i placed on the door grill at the start of hungry ghost month. Its the companion to the buddhas piece. They stand side by side. I just wanted the ghosts and whoever was passing our house to be protected and at peace. And if the ghosts didn’t know where to travel to, the language would help them. Stamped with my name and stamped that it was done in Spring
I am decorating the wall outside my house with artwork. There is more and more artwork as time goes by. There are children living on the floor so i try to choose artwork that they can enjoy as well. I try to choose the pieces i never get tired of looking at.
A fragment of a parchment. Many pieces of a puzzle. My mouth is a door that the light flows through. Though nothing seems to be said. This is on my easel so i thought i’d post it in parts as it is a large drawing.
