CHANGES Statement

“Changes” is a series of work featuring yellow paintings with very playful VW Beetles drawn swinging from hot air balloons and spinning carousels. These animated images explore the awareness between the subconscious and conscious states. Each balloon has it’s own destiny under the influence of forces beyond its control. Each Beetle accepts and looks forward to the balloon’s destiny even if the destination is unknown. This embrace of trust and fate symbolizes the physical and mental joining the subconscious and conscious being together. The process of reaching this simultaneous awareness requires personal changes to take place, which are mental, emotional, physical and spiritual. The colour yellow, which is in the background of all the drawings and paintings, is associated with the solar plexus, which is the centre of personal power that harmonize the physical and mental being.
