The Unleashing was created as an abstract painting in 2005. It hung on the wall for six months before I realised what the painting was about. Twisted in a yoga posture one day, I viewed the painting upside down and the bird ... just appeared. When I looked closely at the painting, I realised it was like a paint-by-numbers canvas. The outline of the bird, it's beak, the tongue inside, its feathers, the leather straps dissolving were all clearly outlined in faint gradations of colour.
To me this painting represents what is happening to mankind. The bonds that have held us back, anchored as we were to old-world concepts of purpose, morality, upbringing and agenda were dissolving and we were all beginning to become free.
