Painting, like dreaming, can be a way of seeing into unseen realms. These paintings arise out of experimentation with materials, color, and texture engaging natural processes. Figures and symbols emerge like an evocation of beings and powers that belong to the timeless dimension of dream or myth. My experience of living for several years in Ghana among a community practicing Akan traditional religion has helped me to understand my art as “animist”, evoking the spiritual potency in all things. One of the functions of this work is to stimulate intuitive vision in the viewer. The subject is the human condition. The “meaning” is located in the mystery.
