Inspired by aspects of Buddhist, Hindu and Taoist thought, Neutral Buoyancy looks at the condition of being human from the perspective of interconnectedness, acceptance and synchronicity. This new work looks at the endless stream of ever-shifting experience and how it continually changes our understanding of the universe and our relationships within it. Abstract imagery derived from opposite elements blends and folds into one another, creating a seamless flow of transformation and harmonious integration. The fluidity in which we perceive the world and ourselves is central to the work's theme.
