The Truth Of You

It takes courage to speak our 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.

Musician, engineer & writer

& there you have it ... ;-)

Lamb Face

Lamb Face was originally a character from a painting I made called 111. She is one of an ensemble representing my imaginary childhood friends. For my first solo exhibition I wanted to bring the beings in my paintings to life and photography became the portal I was looking for.

The individuals who portray my beings in the photographs are chosen because they already possess qualities inherent in the concept and are willing to surrender themselves to the creative unfolding.

Lamb Face is portrayed here by Tammy Nicholls.

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