THE RHYTHM OF LIFE
Paintings inspired by African and Carribbean Spirits, Greek Mythology and the streets of London.
'I grew up in Southern Sudan listening to the distant drumming of local villagers most nights, and joining in when I could. Later I trained in Ghana with the artist Kofi Antobam who combined African traditions with modern approaches. A quote from Jimi Hendrix was my next inspiration... "Life is Rhythm" in Time Magazine 1969. Since then I have been researching the idea of rhythm at all levels and in all dimensions in nature and ourselves. I try to express it on flat canvas or paper as a kind of universal visual language while rooted in particular cultures.'
'I also write about the rhythm model as a philosophy. My latest book is 'Deep Equality - living in the Flow of natural rhythm'. O-Books.2008.'
