2018 Finalists

Linsey GOSPER

Artist statement: ‘Forest bathing’ is a visual representation of the act of energy cleansing. Also known as grounding, when we experience nature, we may feel a sense of stress relief and connectedness. However, this image is more complex – a documentation of the ritual practice of witchcraft, incorporating energy hygiene and the performance of nature spirits.

My art practice investigates the performativity of gender, identity and sexuality – from a feminist perspective. As a ritual practitioner, my interests lie in the fields of the Occult and Magick. I incorporate various rituals as performative acts in the making of my artwork, as I combine art-making with magickal intent.
