Veritas Lux Mea

A series of floating paintings made with mixed media fossilized in epoxy

The unending pursuit of truth is the topic progressing throughout this 7 part floating paintings series; Veritas Lux Mea meaning ‘the truth is my light’ in Latin. The nature of the word ‘truth’ implies a universality, yet upon reflection what comes to light is that each person’s truth is deeply personal. What every individual believes and holds close to them during their life, becomes their unique evolving perspective. And as consciousness develops in humans and time perpetually moves on, truth never stands in one place.

Closely linked to those around them, each person has their own knowledge, values and beliefs. Combined this creates a greater societal representation of what is perceived to be true, which grows and develops as perception gradually morphs into new ways of thinking.
