With no previous background, or training in art, it’s difficult to consider myself an artist in the technical sense. Art offered itself to me unexpectedly as a channel for immense loss and suffering.
Like all of us, I experience the natural joys of wonder and love, nature and growth. And like many of us, our joy is rudely interrupted.
Wildly anticipating the birth of a healthy baby girl on November 5th, 2014, feeling her in the womb mere hours before, I was left cradling a stillborn child. My dreams and visions of mothering, nurturing and witnessing my daughter grow into a woman, ended as the brutal reality defaced my future visions. I found myself plummeting down a spiral into a world unknown, dominated by fear of life and expression itself.
With no place else to turn, I accepted invitation into the therapeutic lap of art. Nine months after her death, I burned with an undeniable desire to paint. Grief emerged from my hands onto a canvas depicting unexplored worlds of emotion and mysterious realms . I found connection to the essence and nature of my being – an experiential exploration of a felt sense, in opposition to the brutality of my thoughts. Within the forbidden landscape of my subconscious, I found the medicine to my own pain. In painting, I found a way to connect and honour a daughter we named Ginger. Through art, our love danced together. I followed Ginger on the path back home.
Ginger is my art. Ginger simply is art, and in this way, Ginger will always be here.
Ginger, you offered me a REBIRTH the moment you passed. Rebirth into a different perspective, a channel into forgotten wisdom. To love this life given all its twists and turns.
To dream life into existence.
To drink nature’s ELIXIR, and be transformed.
I am eternally grateful.
Whilst the body of my work consists of colour as a testament to my love of creation, I hope to provoke thought into the essential nature of duality and paradoxical insight into heavier weighted topics so often misunderstood or suppressed in the depths of self. Within this space i drop the mind, then open into the essence and spirit of the subjects who spontaneously appear to make the unconscious once again conscious. A musing with spirit, be it archetypal, animal, elders or (wo)man.
Art does not fit easily into words, although to me, it feels like a great wise teacher. It’s been unpredictable, unorthodox, unique and holistic. Authentic, yet uncomfortably unfitting at times. It’s quite simply boundless, a guru to my soul.
Its brings me great joy to share this journey with you. Zara
