I experienced a return to instinct in childbirth.
The baby that is born also lives according to its instincts. I was reminded that we are part of nature.
There is a view that I saw for the first time when I stood in that place. I want to think about giving birth to life here and now.

By depicting minerals as symbols of a world rich in diversity, the artist explores his own power of discovery.
Beginning with a sketch painting, the artist repeatedly deconstructed and reconstructed the image in multiple steps.
The exercise of continually re-capturing the landscape we see may be the 'force' that keeps the world generating and changing.
This work is the crystallisation of one of these processes and my wish for a better world.
