A full mind
Description'A full mind' is a visual representation of the dynamic connections between thoughts, memories and stimuli in a busy, creative mind.
In this painting creatures and objects roam freely between rooms constructed of paper thin white walls. Within these walled compartments are vast worlds to roam and explore: a galaxy, a black hole that disappears into a moon, a city-scape, a cold mountain range.
Whilst the white walls are a nod to the white cube gallery and tradition of drawing and writing on paper, hidden within the composition are nods to psychology and spirituality. The grey cold world in the lower right represents our shadow self (an uncomfortable yet intriguing world worth exploring), the glowing sphere in the paintings centre captures the reflection of a small meditating figure and represents awareness, the self portrait next to the abstract figure embracing the sphere represents our relationship to our physical versus our inner identities.
