  • Retune…

    Someone wanted to buy that rose picture, I painted a couple of years ago… But for some reason I can’t let that one go anywhere… So this, instead – is another rose painting – a peony…

    The background implies sky – but is blurred – the point being – it’s outside time – it’s not meant to be a static object, rather an archetype. It’s white and innocent and pure to suggest the need for vulnerability, but at its core is the will to tune into that which is appropriate – to not be completely shut down to potential pain as pain is a necessary aspect of life, but to not be knowingly vulnerable in the wrong direction… Very difficult in practice but I guess that’s just part of growing up…
    I’m very grateful to the buyer, btw – this’ll be in the propinquity of actual art… As in – for art’s

    If one heads in the other direction though, away from the pub and the main road beyond, the city starts to pixelate into patches of nature. Money falls away by degree and the commerce that persists grows gradually weaker… Because now we see… not the genuine blooms of industry – no… these are more like… just weeds… There on the left for example, a cafe that’s not real –

    Stanislav Grof’s holotropic breath work is a fairly eventful adventure. It seems earo move the mind into this language of archetypes that’s its default when dealing with high level, abstract concepts… Though know this – the effect on the body is as strong as quite strenuous exercise so I wouldn’t advise it for anyone who had, say a heart issue… F’real! Who knows what I would have learned if I hadn’t fallen asleep halfway through my session… Although it wasn’t quite sleep…

    The St. Andrews Picture House – a Victorian tiled foyer with frighteningly high ceilings, like in my house, round the corner.
