The Truth Of You

It takes courage to speak one's own truth. The inner voice has gone quiet; a low hum. The voice of reason that assures you all is well lacks conviction and each moment the world grows colder.

This is not the truth of you.

Portrait of Sarah Angliss




Sarah wanted to explore the visual side of herself as a performer. She doesn't get much time to prepare visually before she performs due to the amount of time she needs to spend setting up her equipment & making sure her machines are ready to perform.







This one Sarah took of me (below).


After the attack of the sea gulls we decided to continue our voyage of discovery inside.

"I love the way your figures seem to appear out of nowhere. They emerge like our deepest fears and most intense longings from the evocative backgrounds of abstraction. These mythological figures remind me of archetypes and Freudian thought. Each of your works are compelling and provoke us to encounter our subconscious in a direct manner."

The Speed at which Things Happen



The speed at which things happen, oil on board, 70 x 70 cm


***

I cut my hand on a broken glass jar I had been using to wash my brushes painting this picture. It took no time at all. One minute I had sensation in my index finger, the next minute I had severed the nerve.


Funny that I had been holding in my mind the title of the painting as I worked; willing the world to show me something through the crucible of my imagination & bring it into my life.

 Am I calling the tune? Or is the tune calling me?

Lamb Face

This is Lamb Face from my painting '111', portrayed wonderfully by Tammy Nicholls. Spirited & feisty she always bounces back.

(See May 2010 entry here, Home Ground, for this painting.)
