Fingers Pointing at the Moon presents a new body of work that is a shift away from the artist’s previous oeuvre. Instead of geometric forms laid over vast seascapes the artist is presenting a group of more obscure and subtle expressions. Each canvas presents soft gradients of colour, which can be viewed as expansive panoramas where sea and sky merge and subtleties of light are captured.
The tree forms employed in these abstractions are both a compositional tool and a symbolic reference to transformation. They can be viewed as a memento mori; losing their leaves for the onset of winter, or conversely; new life and the coming of spring.
These transient moments in the seasons have provided the artist with a deep spiritual awareness and are a constant source of inspiration. Moreover, it has been a source of solace and comfort during difficult times in the artist’s life.
