Labyrinths

The labyrinth. Ancient tool of contemplation. You journey along a single looping path into the centre. It takes time. The path is not direct, but it is the only way to get there.

Lately I’ve been making a series of collage labyrinths, using small heads and hands from fashion magazines. The process of making a labyrinth is as contemplative as walking one. The collection and arrangement of collage elements is slow and repetitive, a form of meditation. Labyrinth as metaphor for my art practice. Getting close to meaning, getting further away. Slowly, slowly understanding why I use these images, understanding their essence.

The entry of a labyrinth is also the exit. You leave the same way you came in. But you leave changed.
