Rising Tension

(2019) Tension for Change [Mixed Media on Canvas]

When you’re about to cross the chasm – the threshold of experience – tension awaits.

Tension beckons but you can’t move forward because you’re paralysed with Fear.

Fear takes hold because for the longest time you’ve been conditioned to think that forward motion isn’t possible. The Unknown is a scary place; but you will not perish. You will survive it.

As the fog fades in the background, a light flickers in the convoluted stream of consciousness, you see a way out. The tension moves you forward.

Create tension on behalf of change.

Upended

Every now and then, insights arise that don’t quite jibe with the observations that came before. Such aberrations yield a more nuanced understanding of the topic and are folded into the narrative of what we know. Sometimes, though, a new discovery is so profound that it is impossible to reconcile, and knowledge must proceed in a different direction entirely.
