To Father On His 60th Anniversary

Acrylic On Paper
h: 7 x w: 5 in

This particular body of work aims to explore the Dynamic and Plastic nature of the world at the close of the first decade of the 21st century. It is a celebration of the fluidity of contemporary life. We live in an age that is both post-identity as well as post reality. The very certainty of everything around us vanishes more and more by the second. Fear and Chaos have become the twin orders of the day. But as is always true our lives are not our making. Our only option now, as it ever was, is to choose how we will react to the order our minds percieve as chaos. Will we fight the current and swim like salmon dooming ourselves in the process or will we ride this big beautiful wave all the way to happiness. Shiva's dance of thunder is both the end of the world and the labour pains of a whole new universe. I say Dance Dance Dance.
