In my work I have been examining the extent to which abstract art can open up fresh perspectives on how we see and interact with the world around us, to get beyond concepts that our brains automatically throw at us. This is in order to fully appreciate and to be present in the here and now. It is my belief that art can go some way to help facilitate an experience of clarity that is beyond recognition. We often look at objects around us in a way that alienates us from true perceptive experience because we look, but rarely appreciate, the plethora of visual information received through our eyes into our minds. We categorise and conceptualise raw experience and in doing so separate ourselves from what we are objectively seeing “out there”.
