There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio,
Than are dreamt of in your philosophy. “
Hamlet (1.5.167-8), Hamlet to Horatio
The pieces from this series, come from a point of idealism and a sense of the ongoing creativity in abstraction of images from our environment : earth, sea, sky. Without a horizon line and with no physical reference to landscape they are a deliberate attempt to emulate the “feeling of awe and wonder” we experience when faced with our natural world. They are the bridge between heaven, earth and us, hoping to reveal a direct relationship and alignment between oneself, one’s society and nature; each constantly struggling for transformation.
