Signs

The Signs series of paintings explores the relationships of resemblance between cosmological symbols and various contemporary signs, for example common road signs. Ancient symbols are often unconsciously and subtly embedded into our modern visual world in the form of contemporary signs and symbols. The contemporary meanings they are assigned overlay the deeper more subtly resonating meanings of the past. These works play with this idea by giving contemporary signs an arcane appearance and placing them in context with cosmological symbols. Multiplicities of meaning are created by this juxtaposition and re-contextualisation. New visual languages are established –  new ways of communicating open up.
