Connection, 2016




For this creation I entitled it ‘Connection’ because I wanted to show the connections we all have as human beings. I am a believer in peace, diversity and community. We all have unique souls in unique but similar bodies. And we should embrace it and build on each other in a positive way!

The big, gold circles are like major communities or cities, the dotted lines act like a route marker connecting to each other. The small, whirling globes of blue and gold are like souls inhabiting the earth with some shooting off into the planet’s atmosphere.

I really like the harmony of blue and gold together especially in paints and from my studies in art history, I know it is used historically in Islamic religious text, manuscripts and paintings! (google the “Blue Qur’an”)

I encourage you to also tell your own story from it how you like, but if anything it looks very aesthetically pleasing, if I do say so myself.

It measures are 39.5cm x 39.5cm x 1.5 cm (16″ x 16″ x 0.6″) and signed.
