Whether lightning fast or barely moving, things are in constant motion in an ever evolving landscape of time. Roaming this landscape we go deeper and deeper through spiralling cycles and open doorways in mountains to be climbed. Many new suns are born into a world where the rhythm of the process, the rhythm of creation is made visible in a tapestry woven with time, in time and about time. Swirling puddles in the sky and gateways without doors speak of jumping dimensions and crossovers. A universe held together by colourful handmade reverse wrapped cordage, shaped like the DNA double helix, transports us to a place where the sun is shining, the sandy shore pure and bright and the ocean deep and blue.
Using primitive techniques to create contemporary works is a way to connect time cycles. They often call these primitive, meditative techniques ‘time consuming’, a concept not valued in our throwaway culture. But the way I see it; time consumed is time bygone, time nonexistent. It manifests a still point from where the river of creation flows.
Finding Dhyana in a Leftover Universe where Tender Time Sighs.
While time consumes us, let us take some time.
