ALEXANDRA DUNN

For me, painting in oils is a creative and mysterious process. Out of this process ideas emerge, as well as feelings and emotions that are beyond the limitations of language. Words cannot adequately communicate a human spirit that senses there is something behind and beyond the here and now.

 

As an artist, I understand the post modern age has rejected the numinous and the spiritual in art and has elevated the material and the commercial. However, this is a position I do not share, I have greater sympathy with the long tradition of painting. Using visual symbols, our early ancestors majestically projected their world on to walls of caves, imbuing crude paint with spirit. Today we are still awed by their beauty.

 

When I paint I sometimes get the sense that I am subconsciously searching for openings to reconnect with the mythic and archetypal sources of spiritual life and to connect with the mind in the cave. I use symbolic images in an attempt to communicate understanding through revelation rather than conveying information. In my own way I am striving to bypass the rational, reasoning mind that acts as a barrier between innate individual awareness and universal consciousness.
