Zangmo Alexander artist, educator, creativity coach

I am interested in how art can reach beyond the purely visual and aesthetic to be transforming, healing and spiritually awakening inspirations.

 

As part of long term meditation and contemplation practices, I create luminous mixed media paintings, drawings, photographs and hand-made art books contemplating the flux of embodied sensation, feeling, thinking, memory, self and timeless awareness.

I apply multiple layers of paint and materials varying from thick araldite to gossamer thin Japanese handmade paper. To these are added pastel, pencil and wax to integrate energy and movement, stillness and inner light. These colourful, textured layers are partially dissolved, scraped away and reworked to reveal more a luminous essence within, into which one is invited.
