Oil on Canvas (60×80cm)
Painted in a fervent few days with feeling deeply for a friend with an addiction that cost him greatly. Based upon the Devil tarot card, where attachments and deceit cloud the heart, I was pondering his freedom of choice to fall into cycles of self-sabotage, and his freedom to choose to rise above it.

A contemplation on whether we have a natural right to feel an omni-present Divine (Egyptian relief depicting an interactive solar deity), or if the path to is attained through humility and longing (symbolised by the sufi begging bowl).

If in a moment, we could free ourselves from judgements and expectations while a partner, friend or brother showed the true nature of their heart, just maybe the Divine we seek from so many religions, paths and doctrines will stand in flesh before us.
Misch technik oil and tempera on canvas
70cm x 100cm
Temperance represents an alchemic process of balancing forces at our hearts. It brings the ‘dawn’ by taking the required time, care and focus to harmonize the Sun (solar consciousness of love, empathy & selfless devotion) with the Moon (unconscious turning spiritual concepts into action upon the Earth).
I feel it as a reminder to walk with Grace, acknowledging the similarity of patterns resonating on all levels; Divine, universal, personal and atomic. This tarot card traditionally depicts St Michael or an angel, but I wish to reflect upon our own Divine angelic natures when we harmonizes our psychic and material natures.
On a technical level, this is my learning piece for ‘misch technik’ – a most mind-bendingly complex method and a real alchemic journey into balance & patience! Deepest gratitude to my teachers, Daniel Mirante and Basia Wiacek, who were the embodiment of inspiration!
