The TEMENOS series of paintings and poems explores the idea of threshold space – the place where a new thing can come into being – and is the latest collaboration between Sheffield-based artist Ric Stott and Plymouth-based poet Ian Adams.
A temenos is a sacred space, both safe and adventurous, a sanctuary where we are able to open ourselves up to new possibilities, new ways of engaging with and being in the world, new ways of understanding ourselves, new ways of relating to others and, if a sense of some kind of transcendent reality is part of our understanding of the world, new ways of relating to and understanding the source of all being, wisdom and love.
Each painting overlays image, colour and gesture and the poems weave words that open up spaces and invite each viewer to bring our personal stories and experiences as we interact with the painting.
Deep in the belly / unseen, new life stirs, seeding / flowers into spring.
