I read a lot about creating dreams and goals, setting intentions and manifesting what you want in life. This painting came through first with the more abstract energized top section which I just loved, but I couldn’t figure out where it was going or what to do with it. After spending time with the painting and letting the image speak to me I felt it was speaking to me about that very process, one of energy transforming into something, and I immediately thought of an Aladdin’s Lamp as a symbol for the necessity of asking for what you want. I put the lamp in water, as water is a symbol for our unconscious as well as out emotions, both of which are paramount in creating our dreams and the life we desire.
This series of works which were developed intuitively, are very much about perception because of the many layers of images. The nature of this work lends itself to the viewer bringing to the work their own perceptions of what they see and what it means to them. My descriptions are only my version of what I see. Enjoy the process and let your imagination have some fun.
