Our creative practice uses the figure as a vehicle both metaphorically and pictorially, and as reflections of human experience and spirituality. The figure is the bridge where inner and outer worlds connect the physical and metaphysical landscapes.
Our faith journeys also share a common ground as we are all Quakers. It is a fundamental basis to our personal creative practice to search for our truth.
“Live adventurously. When choices arise, do you take the way that offers the fullest opportunity for the use of your gifts in the service of God and the community? Let your life speak.”
(Quaker Advices and Queries: 27)
Our collaborative exhibition celebrates human integrity and diversity as we come from multi-faith backgrounds namely Jewish, Hindu and Christian.
This artist collaboration is congruent with SMITF’s Gallery ethos and values, as it intrinsically highlights our human condition. Each artist uses the creative process to connect to some core essence beyond words.
“In silence one learns to bring the head and the heart into co-operation in order to move with the strength and power of the forces in the flow.”
