PIVOT POINTS  |  Second Generation Painter

Sally Bowring

The connection between Wittgenstein’s thought on logic and his reflections on the meaning of life was to be found in the distinction he had made earlier between saying and showing. Logical form he had said cannot be expressed within language, for it is the form of language itself; it makes itself manifest in language—it has to be shown. Similarly ethical and religious truths, though inexpressible, manifest themselves in life.
—Ray Monk

The above quote addresses my work in a far more articulated way than I would attempt to describe
the visual form. Although references to textile, landscape and language have been made from my
paintings—none are specific to the work and hopefully all of them (references) transcend any one
meaning to provide an absorbing and intriguing nonverbal experience for the viewer.
