“The symbiosis of my Artistry, my Job, and my Family.”
.
“Symbiosis” is the first painting in my next suite of paintings, following my previous collection “The Akashic Records”. Since I’m currently really deep into dark, Dutch, gold-brown-near black art, that influenced me during the initial intuitively blind-painted beginning of Symbiosis.
And soon a face emerged… Spooky!
.
I wanted to add something very contrasting to the murky face, and had the idea of adding almost like a circuit board pattern in the lower right corner. That of course developed to the full right-side frame you see now.
.
Being very inspired I then frantically splashed neon colours all over lol. It was very much a spur of the moment decision. And that made the whole painting going from pretty moody and borderline scary, to way more fun and interesting! I finally felt that the piece was complete!
.
So. The dark subtle face is my Artistry; the circuitry is my Job; and the neon splashes are my Family Of course, I had no idea about that when I started the painting! I had been challenged by my art therapist to imagine a way to balance these 3 big parts of my life, in the form of a sketch. She wanted me to find a way these quite separate parts can work in harmony for me. And so it was only when we looked at this painting together during a session that I/we realized that this painting was actually that sketch she had requested, totally unbeknownst to me. There you go. Welcome to my world.
.
Little known fact: At an early stage, the work in progress name for “Symbiosis” was “Golden Boy Jamie Oliver”. Make of that what you will.
