Abstract symbols portrayed:
- upright/upside-down vessels, for containment, alchemy
- a superimposed collaged grid layer of squares, made up of personal fabric remnants with inlaid diagonal leaf and abstract vessel shapes for transitional states;
- large X’s (X = As is above, so is below; bonding/attachment) are stitched in a spirit channel/passage line;
- linear boundaries, primal colours and contrasting tones define dualities;
- parallel lines create spatial depth, layers, veils of 3D illusions and hidden/secret passages/realms;
- title/numbers also reference hidden symbology.
