If you stripped the planet of all its inhabitants, Earth would still “live". Earth is not just a vessel for life; the planet itself is alive. Thanks to its geological metabolism – and especially the dynamism of its tectonic plates – the world is habitable. On today's Earth, geology and biology go hand in hand.
I saw this relationship whilst observing the the abundance of life in around shallow pools where the sea meets the rocky surface of my coastline. From microbes to marsupials we owe our lives to the relationship of liquid water and a rocky surface.
With my next painting in this collection I wanted to express the joy of being alive.
The painting is an explosion of colors, shapes and forms as if I had caught a fleeting moment in time. Dynamic, energetic and powerful, my colors and shapes dance around the canvas in a world wind of movement and speed. Just as the world is always evolving, we are constantly on the move and that means to be alive. Change is energy and all our actions cause change, nothing remains still and nothing lasts forever.
