› › The Cleanse

Recently my work has been focusing around the more formal aspects of my practice, represented here by a series of large-format hand-painted colour gradients. These works pose as healing and slightly vibrating - as chromotherapy if you will.


Chromotherapy’s effects were discussed as early as in 1025 in the Persian Canon of Medicine, and methodologically consist of the use of light in the form of colour to balance the lacking energy in a person's body, on physical, emotional, spiritual and mental levels. In my practice these days this claim is an ongoing investigation. Anyhow, this is my cleanse.
