Interconnected

It is within the same space we all reside. No matter, how much space, the universe has no outside.

Sensitive dependence, all causes are affected, karmically protected, butterfly effected, interdependent and interconnected… Those fences you build in self defence, they’re just another thing we share.

You breath out. I breath in. The same air

sand

If you ever look at sand under a microscope, you’ll come to realize that those uniform grains we take for granted, are all all diverse and uniquely beautiful. we are constantly walking on an art gallery.

Natures body

Every species is defined in terms of another. Every species is dependent on another.

There is no separation in nature, in fact the interaction between all living things and their environments is nature

A family portrait

This commission was my first ever family portrait. So I’d like to dedicate it to my family… The family thats here, the family that’s gone, and the family that’s yet to come… thanks for clearing the path and never letting me forget where I came from. Thank you for being so strong, for showing me the way, and helping me along…
To the family that share my blood, and the family that share my soul, thank you for loving me for me and making me whole.

The butterfly effect

“there is nothing about a catapillar that tells you it’s going to be a butterfly” – Buckminster Fuller

Metamorphosis is one of nature’s most dramatic transformations. A destructive being that only rests and cosumes, the catapillar… transforms into a being that poses and creates so much beauty, as it flies from flower to flower…The butterfly.

“we can assume a catapillar has no premonition of the future, so when it enters that cocoon, it must believe it has come to its end.”-Alan Watts

The butterfly for me symbolises the transformation of life, re-birth, and the interconnected nature of everything in existence.

The four elements

The four Classical elements typically refer to the concepts, rejected by modern science, in ancient Greece of earth, water, air, fire, which were proposed to explain the nature and complexity of all matter in terms of simpler substances, they later added a fifth element ether, which was though to be the substance that holds all other substances. Other Ancient cultures in Babylonia, Japan, Tibet, and India had similar lists, sometimes referring in local languages to “air” as “wind” and the fifth element as “void”, the term void has also been interpreted as “self” or “spirit”.

In our modern understanding of the world we live in,there are a lot more than four elements. However with respect to biological life there are four elements that are more common. i.e. Carbon, Oxygen, Hydrogen and Nitrogen. In this piece I tried to combine the modern observations, with the ancient intuition of what matter is.
