In this material world, where humans live behind a wall of ‘knowing’, there is something very beguiling about the hidden realm of Mysticism. Thinly veiled and pulling at the edges of our consciousness, Mysticism is described as “the immediate experience of oneness with Ultimate Reality” [Donald Attwater], or the inherent interconnectedness of all things.
Those who have themselves had mystical experience and those who have studied it, are agreed that the “mystical vision is ineffable”. Since we first learnt to grind pigment and make marks on cave walls, artists have sought to express the inexpressible in visual form. 'Hawks in her hair’ presents the idea of artist as conduit, setting out to explore the magical and mystical artistic confluences that shape life today.
