Colourscape is the story of a journey inspired by the allegory of the Conference of the Birds, a poem by 12th century Persian poet/philosopher, Farid-Uddin Attar. He describes how a group of birds embark on a journey to find the legendary Phoenix, the symbol of eternal rebirth. To achieve this they must pass through seven valleys: Questing, Love, Knowledge, Independence, Detachment and Unity, Bewilderment, and finally Liberation. This series depicts each of the valleys employing colour and feather motifs to evoke either the birds or the space they find themselves in, allowing the viewers to participate in this journey and become travellers themselves. Colourscape is composed of a series of etchings with hints of colours emphasising depth and texture. In this series colour and texture occupy a central role corresponding to the birds’ journey combining the temporal with the spiritual, juxtaposing the travellers’ perceptions of changing personal space and the passage of time.
