Themes;  Mortality

              Movement

              Ritual

              Time

Like breathing, the perpetual cycle where the end of one breath is the beginning of another is likend to the creative cycle. One piece of work will flow into the next, context will change and connections will be made. It is like the whole body of work is beginning to develop a life cycle of its own and the artistic practice is like a shamanic ritual.
