About the Work

We experience the world by interpreting and finding our place in it. Whilst our left brain is concerned with our sense of safety in our immediate surroundings, our right brain is transpersonal -  where the experience of self extends beyond the personal to encompass wider aspects of humankind, psyche or cosmos, looking for patterns and connections. Holding these two aspects together, the works in the series are presented as mirrored images evoking the immensity of nature within which humans are positioned as individuals reflected and reflecting, creating their realities in the Age of Aquarius.  Seen as a whole, the mirroring creates patterns(right brain function), allowing us a distanced, observational stance whilstinducing an analytical and emotional response(left-brain function)when one focuses on any one quarter of the image.
