CREATIVE CORNER… Remembering Our Future and Our Origins

remembering our origins

‘From mother to child we carry ancient information in our DNA, we are inextricably linked to the planet in our past and in our future: we’d do well to remember this more often. Once we die we will return to that place of non-existence, whatever it is, but our legacy will live on, in our children and the world we leave for them. This painting is supposed to represent a foetus in the womb, which in it’s early development is difficult to tell apart from other species, the unborn life form is surrounded by organic patterns of nature. Many people I have spoken to have taken different meaning from it: a protective cocoon, the centre of the earth, the growth of a cell, roots and a seed, a breast, meditation and the eastern symbol of the OM – whatever you see I hope it inspires some thoughts of your own. Peace x’
