CREATING of CREATION
Visual Artist Suzanne McGillivray takes her inspiration from the fiery inner worlds. She has spent her life penetrating into the realms of meaning, where form and formless collide.
Where concepts take their consummation; where patterns and templates reside; where purpose drives all action; where light emerges from darkness and new creations are born.
Creativeness is the basis of evolution, spiral motion moves us ever onwards
This piece reflects Suzanne’s life and also her purpose in art. It is a nautilus, a spiral galaxy,
a fiery whirlwind, a point from which things are born, developed upon a matrix, a building block of the Universe. Step by step the pattern emerges, in beauty rare built true to form.
