NIGHT RIDE TO LOVERS ROCK.
A NEW LARGE-FORMAT DIGITAL PAINTING SERIES: ALL THAT WE SEE
‘All that we see,’ is a suite of large-format digital paintings which reflect the touching points from every day
and every night thoughts, our relationship with each other in the world around us.
Based in the dreamscape of reality, the series comprises of imagined scenes with flurries of elements entering
as if scattered through dreams with dominating symbolism – but left in a ‘woke early’ state.
NIGHT RIDE TO LOVERS ROCK is a vanitas work depicting the individual and circular need for
sexual fulfilment within our routine.
The ancient ‘Baetyl’ or Lovers Rock is a sacred stone that was kept by Aphrodite near her temple at Palaeopaphos.
Specifically, it was visited by those seeking the pleasures that come with heightened virility and desire.
After dark is one of the most frequent time-spaces for encounters and coital activities.
The horse riding characters provide an urgency of movement and imply ever-changing players within the
same life process. Also, a small but significant reminder included here shows the moon in
waning crescent phase reminding us of the rhythm in the passing of time and our own mortality.
Implying maybe, we must just get in the saddle and get on with it.
