Conceptual paintings can both explore new ideas and concepts. They can even ‘be’ new concepts in visual form. Spirituality brings an added dimension to our lives. “My spiritual art work stems from a strong belief in God. Each day I feel that His influence is permeating my work more and more. I believe my work is slowly changing into the way “He” sees the world.
It is difficult for me to separate the spiritual (or Christian) and the conceptual since all the concepts which lead me through life are spiritual in nature. What is the meaning of life? How do we communicate with God? What is the nature of truth, joy, peace, beauty and love? Currently this is a spiritual art gallery on the grow. My spiritual art is also soon to attempt the concept of eternity. These are some of the ideas I hope to explore in the near future. I also like to explore more secular concepts.
Currently I am challenging myself with a series of paintings exploring and commenting on the different genres, styles and mediums employed in art. I enjoy incorporating humour into these and also many of my surrealist works.
Christian art in general has always been very figurative. I am hoping that my particular form of Christian art can go further afield – drawing on the strength of the spirit within me.
In many ways all paintings are spiritual paintings. We are spirit, as well as mind and body.
