“There’s a shadow, beyond the nature of things, that this life cannot reach.”

Ron Dowd ProfileWelcome to the progressions of a personal – yet also impersonal – hermetic, alchemical, gnostic inquiry – digging around, articulating inner whispers.

After a Bone-Fire

“After a Bone-Fire”, from the Sounding folio

  • I make image folios – combining sculpture, watercolour, text and digital graphics.
  • Most of my works are available for purchase as archival prints.
  • You can read about some of the characters that appear in the works.
  • Over the years I’ve written texts that relate to the folios. This one, spiraland (2003), is close to a manifesto of my work now.
  • I practice psychotherapy in Double Bay, Sydney, with Amanda Gruhn (my wife). See more about us on our joint site Therapy Duo.
