This painting explores the emergent principles of visual perception and connectivity to memory. The basis of the physical processes comes from an understanding of the fundamental nature of consciousness and the non locality that particles enjoy. Energy fields are seen as consciousness fields, the biochemist Rubert Sheldrake refers to these fields as "morphic resonances" in which information is shared with other sentient receivers. The abstract expressionist approach is the same idea. Gesture pulverizes the blank canvas by action strokes and emotively driven autonomic responses containing three distinct divisions: sympathetic, parasympathetic and enteric....all of which are the physical manifestation of emotional expressiveness.
