THE ONLY WAY OUT IS IN
This work was created in late 2020, during the worldwide lockdown.
With the outward mobility and freedom of life being stripped away from us I felt at first liberated as though the difficulty of decision and choice had been lifted, the world had become the size of a few rooms. I like being alone, but not as much as I first thought. The anxiety of solitude and the removal of basic human interaction reveals the darkest parts of one's soul. I guess that is the purpose of solitary confinement. With no external stimulants the mind really starts to kick off.
I created this work whilst trying to look inwards rather than outwards. The outside world had seemingly disappeared, leaving the inner world exposed and wanting. It is loosely based around the 8 fold path of, Right Understanding, Right Intent, Right Speech, Right Action, Right Livelihood, Right Effort, Right Mindfulness, Right Concentration. These are represented by the 8 protruding symmetrical leaves. The pine cone above the head represents the ascension of the pineal gland in to a higher state of consciousness that can only be achieved by tuning in to the signal not the noise.
