“Wildness ~ the sheer power and awe of waves crashing onto the beach or a storm raging in the sky. Stillness ~ in the silent beauty of mist, the curve of a shell and the fine details of an insect’s wing.”

This exhibition of artworks aims to achieve a tension between the raw power of the wilderness and tranquillity in a natural landscape. The artworks include still snapshots of wildness in the form of paintings, drawings, mixed media work and original limited edition prints.

I believe that if one can really appreciate or see beauty in all aspects of nature, accept the ‘wildness’ and create ‘stillness’ within ourselves, we’d have a more compassionate interaction within our daily lives and contribute to humanity in a collective revolution
