Solo show : I Sense

My guides have been my senses – the five and others which I don’t have names for. The senses laid out an itinerary of the course I could take. Sometimes it was the smell that took off into a memory or a sensation attached to that memory and the brush tried to trace upon the body of that memorimage. At other times it was the need for a certain kind of touch, unavailable, that every pore of the body opened its gnawing mouth yearning for. The sound of this need rang itself though the veins of the unborn form on paper, while I took the job of midwifing the images to life and see if it had a message for me.

At times, the bridge of smell took my questions and inquires across the void through the delicate fabric of colour and by the end of that stroke it brought back a clear answer to a quest. At times the sheer joy of finally finding, creating and sustaining an empty, receptive absorbent space which was listening to all my banter I would find myself dancing away with certain known and other unknown emotions. And these lines and images and shades and patterns are what’s left from that engagement with one’s many identities and voices. Almost becoming my new identity and voice.

Within these processes I can confess that perhaps, after decades of conscious and unconscious attempts I may have finally caught the end of the thread fluttering in the storm. I share with you the product of this lap in the journey.
