This is from a larger work called ‘Forbidden Fruit’ comprising 125 discrete and chronological images grouped into sets of 5 verses to a chapter, 5 chapters to a book and 5 books to the work. Each book representing the emergence of one dimension and a precipitation of the next. This is the fourth image of book 3. representing energy reaching critical mass and giving rise to form, the 2nd dimension of space – a line of infinite length and then there were 2, then 4, then 8, then many – a plane of not quite so infinitesimally small breadth.
Whilst the content is clearly non-figurative and geometrically derived there is a genuine message to the work. I am either exposing to conscious inspection the archtypical patterns underlying ‘the meaning of life, the universe and everything’ or I’m “completely off my head”. In the final analysis it’s just a work of art.
