A visual philosopher – creating representations of meditations through imagery, words and, sometimes both.
Creativity enables a ‘travelling’ experience, a discovery of the unfamiliar and for something magical to happen. It is the almost ritualistic underlying processes which are important to me. The visual representations of meditations are the tools by which I express realisations and enable connections. I aim to articulate creativity itself.
I like to connect to how we experience life by exploring our relationships with the ‘everyday’ including language and eating. As well as responding to cultural references, my practice is influenced by Eastern philosophies focused on ways of being.
Not being bound by a single medium gives me an immense sense of creative freedom to let the work lead and take me where it wants to go. Each piece of my work is a point on a journey, a map of where I have been and the promise of where I might go in the future…
“Through a diverse range of visual outcomes – from large-scale site specific installations that fill the space with poetic reflections and expose the hidden histories and depths of buildings, to collage, text, prints or even the arrangement of more unlikely materials such as flour and bread – Fi creates her work with a balanced sensitivity and connects us to how we experience life.
Her curiosity with ‘what went before’ has led her on many journeys, both literally and philosophically. The unique way she processes these ‘time travels’ results in artworks which emanate calm and tranquillity, but which hold within them a question.”
