In Search of Beauty
Our longing for beauty in our lives is a universal and unyielding desire. We find it in the grand and sometimes grotesque, but also in the everyday and mundane. Notions of beauty are wrapped up in concepts of justice, the sublime, the spiritual and the connections between them all. Our relationship to beauty has always fascinated me both in my life as an artist and a person of deep spiritual faith. And while I normally explore these concepts visually, I am pleased to be able to speak about them in an international conversation with Atelier Gallery Director, David James in Nelson, New Zealand. This artist talk aired live in July 2021.
