My Journey. Our Journey. Your Journey

I use the idea of a journey to help us to understand our progress through life.
My aim in creating these images is to translate familiar images into a new arrangement of colour and form using the spirituality and beauty of glass. I reduced the images to a minimum, to one lonely figure so that the viewer – instead of just observing a past event of someone else’s story – could enter instead into a dialogue with this figure, aiming to speak universally of the human condition.
However, this series of paintings aims to express hope, and that which survives the desolation and destruction of human suffering, namely the human spirit. As St Paul writes, “we are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed but not driven to despair; persecuted but not mistaken; struck down, but not destroyed.”
