The Eye of Horus The Eye of Horus explores concepts of perception, colour and imagination. The images are fashioned from material objects stripped of their everyday functionality - the space one is transported to is open in all directions. Each image is a distinct “event” of form and colour. The coloured forms are at once suspended and floating freely on a dark opaque surface. The opaque surface, in fact, punctuates and shapes the narrative of each form and creates a sustained tension. The images are attuned to and respond to each other from a distance, involving a play of correspondences. The series also explores the feelings that certain colours evoke. As with all colours, blue has many nuances: an intense “sky blue” draws one into an infinite space evoking a sense of calm and well-being; certain blues evoke the spiritual world and a deep inner silence; an excess of blue and the silence of blue can, however, trigger melancholy. Green is the colour of Wedjat, the Eye of Horus, which has healing and protective powers and represents well-being. It is the colour of fresh growth, vegetation, new life and resurrection. Turquoise represents joy - the colour of the sun’s rays at dawn. These works are disorienting, hovering between the unreal and the surreal, drawing one into secret worlds.
