For those of us bent on self-discovery & the revelation of our own inward journeys, I can think of few better tools than a camera & film. For in the process of looking out to reveal our inner selves, we are on the edge with both, on that thin curved line between yin & yang, blending the known with the greater unknown. When my eyes land on something, I feel a chill in my bones, some kind of recognition, some sense of affintiy with what I am looking at. It matters only that I honor my instincts, for the images that result are like clues to a treasure hunt, symbols that I can return to later when I am lost on the path, having forgotten who I am……Jan Phillips
this is the calling to ‘be’….to honor this life by creating from the visible through the mystery to the invisible…..you emerge, I emerge, we emerge into the urgency of ‘now’….of our inner knowing….of beauty redefined with every new fear, every new quirky reflection staring back from the mirror….something intimate…something universal with a changeling spirit…..
Art & the artist become reflexive, mystically bound into an unbreakable circuit that produces the artist as the subject of the artwork & the artwork as the means of contemplative access to that subject’s ‘transcendent’ & creative subjectivity…….Girselda Pollock
For the rest of my life,
I want to reflect on what light is.
