Mountains and Metaphors

I use landscape elements as metaphors for the human condition. Mountains represent overcoming adversity to find strength, opportunity and abundance. This painting is currently hanging in the Directorate at the Queensland Performing Arts Centre [QPAC] Brisbane. It and 11 other works will be there until 25th November.

Mountains belong to the people who love them... this is a quote from Zen monk Dogen Zenji... i think he meant that true understanding (realisation) is beyond price, beyond ownership. A painting like this one feels liberating in this deepest sense. A beautiful hint of the ultimate!
