Sixteenth Connection: The Same Whole
Like many of my drawings this drawing has a layered structure. You can see the order in which the layers were applied. The first layers are visible through the layers applied later or on top. There is an implication of time passing through this sequencing and also of time standing still as the layers appear to all exist in the same place at the same time. When I work like this I am thinking about the composition as if it was a kind of snapshot of what my conscious mind feels like. Layers of memory, conscious thought, dream images/patterns, alert messages from emotions and/or senses come and go, sometimes in juxtaposition, sometimes one interrupts others, sometimes one creeps in unbidden or begins to morph mysteriously. All exist as part of the same whole.
