Master of Arts (MA)


The works presented in this thesis record my inner response to the outer world. The result from being so completely immersed in the essence of nature that I get beyond the external focus and focus on its emotional, psychological and spiritual impact upon myself. Thus I am forever attempting to unlock the other-dimensions of the world and creatively reveal the inner reality discovered beneath the shifting exterior. This forces me to a personal awareness of myself, my life experiences derived from my own unique set of experiences of living, first in a foreign country, then growing up in an inner-city and now, in my adult life, relating to a rural area. By reaching down into these various levels I hope to portray different aspects of universal human response.
