“Caves represent a passage between this world and the underworld. While they are formed by abrupt geological forces, they play host to internal calm.

Psychologically, entering a cave can have the quality of introversion, incubation, regression to the source, psychic withdrawal or hibernation. The cave can represent a refuge, but also a confined and archaic perspective. – ‘The Book of Symbols, Reflections on Archetypal images’, Edited by A.Ronnberg and K.Martin.

Inspired by an ongoing interest in the mythical and magical, childhood, the sacred and the intimate, these works involve staging, light and miniatures.
