Diptych (60" x 125")

Isis, gatherer of limbs, put the body back together.
Components, when moved around and paired with others, take on new identities. Colors can be perceived as air, earth, water or fire. Each gives up an identity in relation to the other and a new form emerges that transforms the image.

The labyrinth signifies a spiritual grid for traversing boundary lines through self-reflection, self-reference and integration. Like a collection of encounters that come from the past and pass into the future, the border is a bridge for overcoming mind-body dualism.

Increase or perish. Some things die, others fuse and unite.Once one thing replaces another, something new is born.
Recycle, recover, regenerate, restore. Modification in proportions that exceed the simple detour.

Threads of discourse. Rules of engagement, passing through time. Ordering allows for inferences, partial overlap and partial independence; overlapping circumstances, overlapping attachments. Time surfaces as spaces are revisited and revised.

Bits are not reducible to parts. They are moments in the overall process that when entangled between connecting paths, preserve information as it is transformed. Minded-matter-mater. Physical nature as a symbol of the spiritual.
