artFix is proud to present a solo exhibition by talented artist Desiree Ickerodt
About the artist:
When people see my work, I would like them to question their own perceived reality. Even though my artworks are form, they question the validity of the manifest, the perceivable. They are a paradox to themselves. I take my inspiration from the Indian philosophy of Advaita (‘non-duality’), Theosophy and phenomenology.
Solo Exhibition “Soul States”:
The paintings in this exhibition depict inner landscapes. Some of them have a distinct cosmic feel to them and express the soul’s dialogue with the cosmos and anything that may lie beyond it. There is an inherent unity of all things – tangible and intangible. Facing the infinite, we can tap into the source of being.
The paintings are inspired by a daily morning meditation. Désirée typically begins any creative process with a short meditation. In turn most of her paintings lend themselves very well to meditation and she has experimented with some of her paintings using them as meditation tools. As the meditative state during the making of the painting informs the end result – the physical painting, so can the physical painting have an impact on its environment and the people in it. Désirée firmly believes that if you focus on peace, you will get more inner peace and the more peaceful you are, the more peace you will spread and get back.
Exhibition opening launch party on the 20th March at 5 pm
