Cosy Cosmos

Where do we come from? How did we get here? Why are we here? Who am I? Who are you? 

“There is not one big cosmic meaning for all; there is only the meaning we each give to our life, an individual meaning, an individual plot, like an individual novel, a book for each person.”                       Anaïs Nin, The Diary of Anaïs Nin, Vol.1:1931-1934

‘Cosy Cosmos’ is the chapter of my art practice that was inspired looking through a microscope at a tiny drop of pond water. A wilderness of life forms appeared and I felt as if I was suspended. ‘The eyepiece of the microscope had become the porthole of my spaceship and I was travelling through an enigmatic Cosmos, sublime but cosy enough snuggled in my armchair.’ Since then I have been documenting what I had seen, pondering on questions of life and existence, dealing with glitches of memory, visual perception and communication, managing aided viewing tools and pitfalls of art history.

A selection of these works culminated in ‘Welcome to Cosy Cosmos’ shown at the Whangarei Art Museum from 12th December 2016 – 19th February 2017.
