(acrylic on canvas)
What is reality
If only what we know
Is but a name.
When that we
Do not understand exists
Just the same.
To shift a molecule
One moment to the left,
Untwist the D and Aid,
Rewrite the tome
Push back the stone … poof!
Marble to marmalade.

Painting started in an acrylic painting class in 2010, a representational abstraction (from a blurred image, what the actual image was I do not know).  Throughout the process I imagined the process of discovery, where what we know can change in the blink of an eye and what appears to be reality may be only a dream.  The poem came later as I considered the importance of disruption in our lives, how we fight change and fear the lack of “order”.  Completed in 2011.
