A Journey into the light was originally, like most of my works, an abstract painting. After the initial frenzy of its creation, it took six months of meditation to reveal the purpose and imagery of the painting. Figures and designs eventually coalesced into a complete vision with a comprehensive theme.
It started with the small figure in the foreground - the bedraggled wanderer obviously on some kind of mystical journey. The fireball had in it's flames hundreds of images as well as a large face I took to represent that of my god.
I was in search of a loving God and the abundance that is promised by so many modern spiritual theologies and yet like the wanderer, I was poor, struggling and in fear that this journey was going to kill me before I reached the "promised land".
The images in the flames held every vision of what I held to be abundance - a wife to love, a god, wise and mighty companions, food, animals, water, loving parents, a chariot driven by 4 horses and the ability to manifest as represented by the blue avatar in the center of the flames.
The fundamental shapes in the flames were laid down in a span of about 10 - 15 seconds during one of the paintings most passionate moments - another example of spontaneous apparition. I have used an understanding of the phenomenon of spontaneous apparition to reproduce the phenomenon in about 90% of my paintings. Shapes in my paintings are completely accidental - created using original techniques nobody has ever thought of.
After using these techniques, minute amounts of colour were carefully laid down to bring out what was already in the painting and as it evolved it became for me a fundamental statement of my own and perhaps man's journey through life.
