With a nod to the Rorschach inkblot tests, this series of work sits between a visual meditation of the chakras (the subtle energy centres of the body) and a labyrinthine journey to the soul.

Although superficially symmetrical, as the viewer engages with the piece differences become more and more apparent.  Rather like a child’s “spot the difference” game the eye is shifting back and forth to catch the variations.  Once accepting the differences, the eye can follow an inward journey around the work and gently absorb the colour which will imbue its own qualities into the viewer.
