The original painting is slightly warped like my knowledge of the Egyptian life, science, architecture, astrology, mythology, and it’s civilization. It is therefore a visionary painting in that I am visioning what that might have looked like based on what I know and the information I have gathered on my journey. The painting retells the stories I have heard, seen or been told, including the great flood, Isis as the Divine Mother (also protector of the dead, patroness of nature and magic) , cats “mau”. Sometimes I make up words like ‘paintovision’, which this painting would probably fall under if I had to categorize my work, it shows the cycle of life from birth to death and than to the underworld. Egyptians according to John Anthony West’s series, Magical Egypt, suggests that even if one was born into misery that they had a chance to redeem themselves, and perhaps this is useful insight for humans living today, it is never too late, the cycle will repeat, and we will do what we do until we do something different, than we might actually get some where else, although I am humble enough to admit that I do not what that ‘somewhere else’ is, whatever it is, it will be extraordinary.

Fotomahaloness -just too be off the wall I have included many views of a japanese accordion style doodle, it doesn’t quite fit frame, I see myself tattooing someone with this drawing, one continuous tattoo that spirals up the body, or down, depending on perspective.
