"Nature Loves to Hide" 16" X 16" acrylic on canvas- SOLD. This title of this piece is actually a quote by a pre-Socratic Greek Philosopher Heraclitus of Ephesus (c.535- c.475 BCE) whom i admire for his mystical and transcendental writings. This painting is darker, mysterious yet playful and in motion reflecting the deep secrets and nature of Nature itself. Nature does not easily give up her secrets and there is much indeed to know and investigate through science but also through a less scientific but subjective transcendental approach. And i speak specifically to such wonderful books as "The Cosmic Serpent" by Anthropologist Jeremy Narby or a long forgotten book "The Secret Life of Plants" published in the 70's by Tompkins & Bird. Fundamental consciousness, energies and realms of other dimensions lies all around us and connect every living and even 'non-living' thing -a basic idea the bulk of humanity hasn't become cognizant of yet and this painting, and others like it (in my 'Nature' series) visually speak to these fundamental concepts.
