I retrospectively titled this piece ‘Adam’ because it was the genesis of this style of painting. Alongside this, he subconsciously became infused with what seemed to me to be more masculine elements. The tower is a multifaceted historical symbol; human engineering, agriculture, academia and conflict all orbit this archetype of human architecture. Alongside this, it represents the tower of Babel
Stylistically the idea came about from wanting to create a visual representation of the mind. The chalk face represents the carbon body fused into this reality. The blocking medium (black lined areas) represents the structure of the brain, and the white images are representative of thoughts, memories and visions. The original painting is in Australia.
