Abstract Paintings: The Breath
The Breath series of paintings is informed by the experiences of investigating the breath through teaching yoga and practising meditation. These disciplines, which develop skills of restraint, reflection and economy of energy, are reflected in the minimal uncluttered images of this series. Conveying the breath in abstract paintings as something that can be light and barely there, or bound and held, depicting abstractly the notion of using a small portion of the lungs, and in this case the canvas is the body as container or vessel for the breath.
