Expressing visually what is intangible, transformative and fleeting while having the impact of shifting awareness with the outcome of a more integrated and connected authentic self. Nothing is solid and the 'imaginative' essence of painting can express this reality in a simplified form that feels true to my own understanding of how I 'see' the world. The energetic self and the flow of insight are symbolised as 'atoms' or dots. The flow of an idea can be read as the viewer 'follows' the story, and the meaning unfolds. Ladders express the potential to see beyond one's current understanding or journey to a higher understanding of self.
