‘Memories of a Far Away Place” January 2015. This image represents a synthesis between past memories of a fondly recollected place and time AND that living presence within my inner creative world. When these become one and are expressed, this is what I understand as the development of artistic and visionary capacities.
‘The Creatures that Live on Mountain Tops’ – July 2014. This image is best explained by a word cloud: ..vivid childhood memories of summer sun streaming through stained glass window.. the miracle of light and the gift of sight.. integral unity v synthetic unity.. (Malhotra).. non duality not division.. individual in harmony with others.. mountain & sky.. earth and heaven.. material and the unseen.. The emergence of mystery
‘Heraclitus’ May 2014. Heraclitus was a pre-Socratic Greek philosopher and is famous for his insistence on ever-present change in the universe. This image was inspired by reading his words;
“Thus there are no solid bodies. Things are not really things, they are processes, they are in flux. They are like fire, like a flame which, though it may have a definite shape, is a process, a stream of matter, a river. All things are flames: fire is the very building material of our world….”
‘Hibernia’, April 2014. This image again came out of nowhere. I am always in awe of the processes of creativity. I have no idea how this takes place but somehow a multitudinous synthesis of thought, feeling and impulse takes place; too many experiences to manage are brought into harmony and everything is made good as a result.
