Mindfulness & Metaphysics as a process for peace: Mandinka Kora Rythyms, 2019
Acrylic on canvas
400.5 x 500.5mm
My work represents the collective nature of cross-cultural collaborations and the value they bring to cultural and creative education.
Through painting in response to West African kora (Harp) music I am listening to the rhythms and expressing them in an abstracted visual language of calligraphic strokes and notational marks to form a manuscript in paint. It is an immersive musical and visual experience, fundamentally mindful in terms of being truly in the moment, whilst aware of the metaphysical connectedness that is generated between the musicians and painter.
To create a peaceful planet, we all need to recognize that we are all connected, that our actions emanate ramifications of emotional responses. We need to spread joy, to be compassionate and inclusive, loving instead of fearful.
