23 Jun 2017 - 8 Jan 2018 Re-creation Category: Show/Exhibit
I am a wanderer in my neighbourhood. I follow the paths, the creeks, and the field roads and rarely walk far from home. But the completeness of this small world astounds me. There is really nothing more needed in my travel. Here I see a creation that never ends, a world which is constantly being made new.

As an artist, this act of renewal or re-creation is also my task. At time the work seems exhausting and unending, but this search for the new as it emerges from the old pulls me on. My work is a connection to the creator God, One in whose image I am also created.

As in the natural world, my re-creations are also a remaking of the old. A pieces of a broken teapot, a tile from a rubbish heap, or a treasure found in a thrift store remains recognisable as part of that past creation and brings its own story to become part of the new.
