Winter to Spring

Winter to Spring is a small collection of paintings and works on paper, created as a visual journal of observances, memories and emotions surrounding transitions in our lives, nature, our urban environment and the seasons.

The works describe an internal landscape of visions and memories where only nature; the wind, the trees, the earth and waters offer solace and comfort from an inevitable end and new beginning. The cycle of birth, life, aging and death reflected in the seasons of the Earth.

Ponderings of the human soul on belonging, isolation, death, hope and rebirth, reflected in the frozen, melting, and growing landscape….our lives in these neighbourhoods, this city and country, perched on the back of this land. 

Winter as a time of stillness, darkness, reflection and rest, and spring as the emergence of new life, fresh growth, vitality, rebirth and change.
