Unknown Freedom.

There is only the unknown, unknown freedom. Yet a dream seems to play out which seems very real. It seems real but is not. There seems to be someone but this is the dream.

An energetic sense of self happens in the body and from this, there seems to be separation, an object to a subject. There seems to be a person searching to find something, find happiness, and find more. This energy of separation, which is an experience of something missing, of loss, of unworthiness, is an illusory sense of a person. The person searches for better experiences, or something else other than this - unknown freedom. A journey seems to happen where this energetic sense of a person is searching for fulfilment. The search, through more experiences, will never find what it is looking for. Yet this is also freedom happening as a search....this is wild and free. This is unconditional freedom.

Yvette Swan is a Sydney-based artist. She graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts, from the University of NSW, College of Fine Arts. She has worked in the film and photographic industries. Since 2000 she has been a professional artist and has had over 50 solo and group painting exhibitions, including the Wynne Landscape Prize at AGNSW, Metro Prize, Fleurieu Peninsula Biennale Prize, and the Art Series Leeuwin Estate Collection. Yvette's work has been part of art consultancy projects, art expos, art prizes, and commissioned works for corporate, design, and private clients. Yvette's paintings are included in the book “Unfinished Journeys” by Ken McGregor. Her paintings belong to private and public collections. Yvette also creates through writing.

The story of Yvette is a story. It isn't real. Seemingly real but only a story. Nothing appearing as this. The one experiencing the story of having done this and that is the dream, the separation. A dance between someone and no-one seems to happen or seemingly disappears completely. Simply nothing/freedom freely happening.


Yvette Swan has created paintings for solo and group exhibitions, projects, expos, and commissions. See Artist and Shop pages for more information and available works.
