My current and ongoing project Depart without Return is a personal reflection on death and the meaning of emptiness; it is both a lament on the transience of life and a celebration of its mystery.

I’m interested in how the artist depicts the invisible—the latent within the actual—just as the writer uses words to express the ineffable. From this seeming contradiction arises the premise of this work: an exploration of how humans conceive of the Divine through language, the body & landscape.

The combination of silk and the colour indigo is intrinsically linked to my theme. The properties and processes that form the Indigo dye make it a unique signifier of mystery and transformation.
