Worlds within our World
Acrylic on canvas 100 x 100 cm
With the “real world” of the Earth in the background, this painting depicts the various “worlds” we humans have created over time, either out of or in conjunction with the Natural non-human worlds.
These overlapping, interacting worlds originate in the metaphysical realm of human ideas, values and beliefs, but their consequences manifest in the physical and relational spheres, affecting all beings with whom we share the Earth.
To explain further – The idea was conceived in a shower washing my hair the single thought came of all the worlds we as humans have created in our natural environments. I stepped out drawing a few circles in pencil that evolved over weeks into this art work. I will now take you through that process if you like.
