Re-inventing LIFE through ART, an ongoing therapy.
Silent intelligence, each soul’s higher self, speaks of a collective, a whole; the human race as one. In our hearts we all know this to be true, one only needs to apply thought. Pressure in the frontal lobe region may follow as a result, tension will subside with gradual use of the minds eye.
If you’re in disagreement I invite you to come along and allow the artists involved to persuade you of another outlook, or more accurately in-look. An in-look which becomes an outlook of the soul. Push the envelope and watch it bend, be like the reed in the wind, the one Confucius spoke of. The Hidden runs our lives, for most of us have no idea of our purpose of existance. Most of us hide behind invisible mask of our choosing.
Man is a walking talking paradox, who’s hypocritical abilities are of legendary status. At this point in humanity’s evolution I believe it is important to pause and take stock of one’s true purpose, lights, gifts and shadows truths. Together they provide the human halone with a third dimensional experience, according to information (thoughts) available.
Seems to me, one’s thoughts and intent should take precedence above all.

My adopted ‘family totem’ is this proud Thorny Devil (Moloch Horridus). I have yearned to paint this little guy since my auntie, who lives in Alice Springs visited our family in Melbourne many years ago. I was over joyed when she opened her bag to reveal her beloved pet Thorny Devil who happily jumped onto the kitchen table to greet us with a smile.
