About the event

The Subtle Mother, An intimate title, which could bring a nearness, a domestic, quiet but strong character who loves.

The intention here is to go wider into the creative feminine force, Mother Earth Herself.
This energy has historically been appreciated and worshipped through the Goddess; Shakti, Athens, Mother Mary/Madonna, Isis, Quan Yin, Holy Ghost and the Kundalini to name a few.

Most of these paintings are related to that aspect of God the Mother; the energy that is creativity itself, silent, but the power, The Subtle Mother.

My understanding of this comes from Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi who started Sahaja Yoga Meditation in 1970;
giving a way for humans to reveal within themselves this knowledge in a silent way.

The aim in these works is to mix different religions and cultural symbols to invoke a link with this inner but universal quality. Using canvas, canvas boards, MDF, acrylic paints are the start, finishing in oils for strength of colour and detail.
Handmade stencils are mixed in with nature. Varnish gives a gloss and a protective coating.

Exhibition Opening 15 October at 1pm
