Donna Gough. Artist.


Exploring the real and the referential, linking elements from drawing, sculpture, installation and light-based media - with parallels of light and consciousness underpinning my conceptual framework.

Not knowing what your future is going to be – doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist. Each of our ‘nows’ influence a future momentarily beyond our grasp. If we stand back and reflect on our ‘nows’ in sequence, time starts to flow. But the present self is timeless – and always now. This work considers the present moment through the direct, non-intellectual spiritual experience which may represent one’s fundamental view of themselves – and of existence.
