SACRED GEOMETRY

Historically cultures and civilisations have understood geometric shapes to be of spiritual significance, providing insights into the universe. In this body of work I have used circles, triangles and squares to represent windows, portholes, or entry points into self-constructed, sacred environments. The use of the circle is particularly prominent and important in the way that it represents the possibility of something that is without beginning or end. Circles are imbued with a sense of universality, totality, connectedness and oneness. Circles are also often seen as protective symbols. Standing within a circle has been known to shield a person from supernatural dangers or influences. Conversely, a circle can also be containing, keeping that which is inside from being released. This work stems from a desire to both reconnect and remove. Reconnecting to a sense of place while also seeking removal from the fast paced and overwhelming modern world.
