Notes for a Retrospective


#1 Leaves falling from the Tree of Life : spring comes to the garden.

#2 The Big Bang : God throws his paintbox at the biggest blank canvas ever.

#3 Therapy : I found these patterns on the edge of nowhere.

Sunburst : a cancer cell emitting electromagnetic signals.

#4 The Tower of Babel : a tumour of a million cancer cells, all emitting their unique electromagnetic signals.

#5 Landscape without figures : we pick out the pieces which best fit the landscape we have within.

#6 This egg yolk is not an egg yolk, but a fungus : nothing came of it.

#7 Speak to the hand, the ears aint listening : Adam and Eve talking to their three children about the consequences of sin.

#8 Pornography : the three children put into practice what their parents told them.

#9 A string bag : the strings vibrate to the distortions of time and space.

Engaging as ever and, if it can be allowed as a definition: "positively, brightly disturbing".

Chuckles Dave! There's a lot of wit involved in creating these. And you took us along with varied offerings. Enjoyed them!

Oh my. Some of these I welcome, and some I can see their beauty but only in the abstract.
A stunning collection. Thank you.

Thanks Brian. My (younger) brother must have had almost as many surgeries for skin cancer. He's been having them seemingly continously over many years now.

In a waiting area of our area hospital there is a series of images of various cancers that are absolutely stunning. They go round two sides of a very large open-planned area. Apparently the thought is that if you can see your cancer in this way it has a positive effect. It was those images that I had in mind.

There is also a belief around that parts of a cell "talk" to each other using electro-magnetic waves and that these may also be used to "speak to" other cells.

Mary
Yup, understood and thanks!

Kelvin
