A Life in Paint
This painting is all about Autism, the Autistic mind and in particular, Asperger's Syndrome. They are calling Asperger's High Functioning Autism now. These are simply the way in which we use words to communicate with each other. With this piece, The Knowing, the communication I'm using involves intuition, feeling, insight, gut-sense and recognition that the viewer has with what's in the painting.
When I was little, I had a BIG imagination. I still have the same brain. This obviously comes in handy with what I do, but it's all the other stuff in me that goes into my art. It's flow of The Knowing, the seeing into the other side, making friends with the spirits and ghosts, the good souls and friends from the other realm, from behind the curtain. If you are a collector of my work, you understand what I'm talking about. You know I'm not just some nutter. ;)
Asperger's? High Functioning Something or Other? All I know is that there is beauty in all these Earthly brains and perhaps if we can look very deeply into the abyss, into the dark, we can see something new and undiscovered, something that we need to evolve.
Namaste to the helping and inspirational spirits from the other side.
