This piece is fairly definitive of one of my major themes.
The figure in the foreground is me, and I am looking at my watch. This is meant to be in contrast to the figures floating into the sky and the incoming storm. It is about subjectivity – in the end, we are all ultimately self-involved as it is our own perceptions that govern us and we can never know another.
I am also, always, always, obsessed with time. It seems such a strange thing to me.
The piece has a bit of history too – one of my closest friends was interested in buying it, but at the same time I had no money to frame a similar piece that I wanted to enter into a competition. SO I made him a deal – if he paid for the framing of the other piece I would enter it into the competition and if it won he could have this one for the price of the framing. If it didn’t win then I would give him a discount.
Oddly, it won, so this pierce is now in Tim Jackson’s possession.
It won the Katanning art award in 2002.
I would like to display a poem,
By C.C. Arshagra.
Inspired by the pastel creation titled “Seething Landscape”:
by the artist “pauldrobertson”
I believe time can heal the impossible
And open up the realms of storm
To finding the peace of soul’s reasoned being
Enter the mind is torn together by form
The agony of bones discovering
The wisdom of the wild sky’s breathing
And there is no more intelligence of fighting
When madness fills up the void with laughter
And transcends the broken world
With a wholeness so unlimited
