Destination: The Ark of the Tree of Life Envisioned
.
This is the second of three new paintings of mine currently on exhibition at http://www.tensionfineart.co.uk. The large orb derives from numerous paintings and drawings I have produced on the theme of ‘seed’ (particularly the mustard seed, one of nature’s tiniest seeds). As a germ carrying the blueprint of the whole tree that it might become, it is a fragile vessel of hope and future potential, and here I have expanded it into a giant seed… juxtaposed by a similar symbol, the genesis of a floating ark. Noah, of Bible fame envisioned an ‘ark-womb’, a symbolic ‘Tree of Life’ destined to preserve mankind and all of life on earth against evil and calamity. In this work the two seeds converse with one another.
