Recently I have been reading and considering the 7th Century Hua-yen Chinese philosophy that influenced Zen in terms of that concept of interconnectedness and impermanence and I’m pulling this into my worldview behind the art and expanding yet simplifying my process. Currently I have some small pieces on show, please check the exhibitions page.

‘There is only incessant change and flux’ (Hua-yen)

‘..blooming, buzzing confusion…’ (Whitehead)
