‘Angels and New Jerusalem and Madonnas and Future Budhas’ – Aldous Huxley
I have always enjoyed drawing, it came naturally, the joy in seeing gnarly and aged tree forms, later on anatomy and always the imaginary, the surreal. Where school celebrated the form the sweet pepper ( I was underwhelmed by this repetitive model ) I delved into reading about the paranoiac critical method and hyper real arts. I paused my passion for drawing in 1994 when I moved into the new frontier of electronic arts and studied a degree in Interactive Art in Wales.

Since December 2015, I became interested in the history of Mary Magdalene, Jesus’s consort as this is also my chosen name by confirmation at aged 12. I interpolated the discussions of their relationship and dynamic with my own feelings and these images are the result, the text collage is from a study of the spirit life from an anthropology book from the 1950s. I felt curiously (as an agnostic) compelled to locate a large Bible ( specifically to mount the drawings in) to be displayed on a transparent lecterns, holding each (1 of 7) open at a specific illustration.. this came from Hypnogogia and some insomnia. I was able to locate “Family size” (gigantic bibles) in vintage shops and online, weighing over 6 Kilos and slightly larger than A4 size. However, I am not attempting illustrating the chapters, I am assimilating the controversial and allegorical fantasy accounts into further semantically obtuse, mystical and ambiguous versions of the bible. All images A4 unless stated.
