I completed my Fine Art degree at the Queensland College of Art in 2001 with a major in Printmaking/Drawing and am currently undertaking my honours year of study. The prints I have included in this exhibition are an edition of two screenprints, which are miniatures of my present body of work. These works are motifs of transcendence, grounded in the everyday through the weave of various man made materials. The juxtaposition of layers of materials with abstract archetypal symbols suggests that it is only by removing deceptive layers of social and cultural conditioning and getting beneath the surface, that we can begin to uncover the origins and truth of the spiritual. The almond shaped central area 0 is a mandorla, symbolising the union of heaven and earth; it is associated with the Magna Mater and the magical weavers of thread.
