Rotorua artist Donald Overbeay is exhibiting at Lake House Arts this month.

Originally from the United States, Overbeay has held various academic positions at American universities and NZ tertiary institutions. He was a Fulbright-Hays Scholar in the early 2000’s, studying Buddhist meditation techniques in Thailand and Taiwan, which has greatly influenced his artistic practice.

“My process is a vehicle, to search for originality and truth to self. It is pivotal in holding the image sacred. I use trance like states to free myself from the world around, and delve into the unconscious. This mimics the same process that prehistoric and shamanistic artists utilized when creating cave or rock paintings. The imagery is ideally produced from the embedded structure of the mind and not from historic or contemporary references. As a result, I am freed from any artifice and open to multiple visual outcomes.

Preparation of the unconscious mind is central to my process. Before I start painting, I perform a series of ritualistic actions in an effort to conjure belief in myself, my process and my ability to capture the enigma. When I paint, I believe in something." - Donald Overbeay.
