Self awarenessThis painting has just been sold, it has found its place to be.
It harks back to the early days when I sought to describe the sense or feeling of being alive. The unconscious gyroscopic ability to remain upright without apparently thinking, of seeing, respriation and the mental reconstruction of three dimensional space. More function than features. Thus to paint myself with this in my mind must result in a fairly unusual piece.
One can no more explain such a work as explain a love letter. It was an editing and a re-editing until some aproximation of my self awareness was reached. It contains no rational deduction, only a mapping of feeling in colour.
If you stand and focus on 'awareness' you will feel how this looks - try it.
