------ updated july 23rd 08, fine art print added ------ Image Description:
A macro landscape? A product of chance and intention? Almost a representational abstract?We could almost pause and consider the ways in which phenomena in our lives contain their opposite, or spring from their opposite as a foundation, or appear to be one thing but are that thing's opposite. One comes to wonder if there is such a condition as 'opposite', and wonder why people are inclined "to talk of opposites where there are only degrees and many subtleties of gradation"?
Of course this little image will not drive home these questions, not with real force. You have to thrust these questions upon yourself, and you have to need, not just want, the answers. But it is the humble goal of the composition to point out that all phenomena are one, and continuous. That in flakes of snow can be found the countenance of mountain valleys, and great mountain ranges can be found in your heart, and that you can be found in the heart of snowflakes. This is an important point to bring up, and I only wish I could have done so with more subtly and profundity with the image then I was able to. But it may at lest plant the seeds of the real questioning.------ ------ ------ ------ ------
