I acknowledge the First Nations People of the Kulin Nations, the Wurundjeri, Traditional Custodians on whose land I live. I pay my respects to their Elders, past and emerging.
My inspiration is the natural environment and our mindscape. I am most at peace with trees and animals and they are my closest confidants. My art depicts a fusion of the living forces as they emerge within the world around us existing purely as colour, line, and space. The digital works are sculptural and fluid in form. A calligraphic sensibility pervades the paintings and drawings. Throughout my work there is movement and presence. The play of light, shadow and space offers opportunities for reflection.
My art practice is dedicated to my father Mohamed Fauzee (1934 - 2021). I was introduced at an early age to abstract art through the influence of my father, and was especially captivated by his own art which featured strong use of line and bold colours. I have a PhD in philosophy (Monash University) and a Graduate Certificate in Visual Art, Victorian College of the Arts (The University of Melbourne).
Tread gently upon the earth and feel the life around you.
