    Thomas this looks so much like a painting to me( I hope you take that as a compliment) Beautiful layering and the “halo” ? eye and other elements really add to the narrative.

    I know what you mean agnostic leaning towards athiest, I come from a family of Cathalaholics and never fit in that trap of organized religion……prefer my own ideas,thank you.

  • I take that as a VERY high compliment indeed (especially coming as it does from such a wonderful painter!) Just look at my favorites on here and see how many of them are paintings!

    Yes – I’m a “recpvering Catholic” too – although I must say – it never reallly leaves you. I know that being raised Catholic shapes my art and a lot of my thought processes too.. I still have that sense of mystery, of multiple deities (even though we called them “saints”) that represent forms and forces of the Universe, and of course a sense of dualism that I will probably never shake….

    Ancient times, egyptian even… Lovely use of texture and layers as always !
    The eye is important and strong. We are all made out of layers and carriyng the past with us. The ghosts of our history. A sort of collective and individual unconsciousness…
    I’m wondering what the the circle- sign above her head means ?
    I was brought up catholic too. Still young I decided not to follow dogma’s.
    But Im also still influenced by it too, tha’t is for sure.
    Love the warm way you bring this image and symbolic message Thomas.

  • Anna – I knew you would understand exactly what I was getting at with this ! The circle above her head is a wheel which of course signifies the cycle of life, death, rebirth, etc… and the constant motion of that which we call “time”..

    Another ex-Catholic eh? That explains a LOT actually! One thing I’ve noticed about a lot of ex-Catholics’ art is the mixture of fetishistic/bondage elements with either Martyr or Saintly themes…. (Just look at Madonna’s old videos for proof of that!)
