Taking the leap of faith into the alchemic fires of change. These last few figures are a cross between a Ly and human form – they have faces and human musculature. There is a closer connection between my painting/dream life and my physical life.
This painting depicts me in the form of a Ly moving towards my fears which looks a bit bullish.
This fear is part of me, MY fear.
‘Bullish’ comes from when I was 4, sitting on a high rail fence watching cattle being branded, a huge wild bull crashed through the fence of the next yard, sending stockmen scrambling and me wide-eyed tightly gripping the rails. I respect bulls.
