On the lower left a figure sits in concentration before an altar. In one hand is a lock, signifying a question or puzzlement, in the other hand is the end of a cord running along an inward path. Also some acorns on the altar imply a relationship with the tree that the cord ascends before crossing the multicolored bridge that the figure's double follows to a higher space upon a stack of books brought in the knapsack that the cord is tied to. The second figure passes a second candle, signifying another point of concentration. In the higher space sits Ganesh in an energetic form, holding the image of a key. This image projects through the window of the higher space, through a split in space and time, signified by the compass and square beside the pocket watch to return to the waiting figure below. http://armadelartworks.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=128334995 128334995 Smoke Ring a self portrait http://armadelartworks.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=128335079 128335079 Alchemy http://armadelartworks.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=128335080 128335080 City in the Sky City in the Sky shows a fabulous floating city under minor renovation, with many flying ships and even a misplaced galleon. The galleon has sent out a longboat with the captain and a rower with a telescope and a map to ascertain the situation. The foreground boat has a drunk at the tiller, and a reclining first mate. It corresponds to air. http://armadelartworks.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=130837420 130837420 City by the Sea City by the Sea shows tiny figures on a cityscape of surrealistically shifting scale, demonstrating the modern condition of having built upon the ruins of fallen and ancient magnificence. There is an astrolobe, huge to the scale of the figures, and in the sky the moon moves on a rail just like it's tiny model within the astrolobe, completing the play on scale. It corresponds to water. http://armadelartworks.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=130837686 130837686 City Besieged City Besieged shows the destruction of the city by twin fiery dragons, and a complex escape boat of symbolism. It corresponds to fire. http://armadelartworks.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=130838017 130838017 Green Girl http://armadelartworks.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=130838437 130838437 Subterranean City Subterranean City is about consciousness, here symbolized by the bound dragon, and it's relationship to the senses, which are the windows looking outside of the surreal interior mindspace of the main area of the painting. It corresponds to earth. http://armadelartworks.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=130837604 130837604 stairs http://armadelartworks.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=130838438 130838438 Euryale http://armadelartworks.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=130838439 130838439 forest fire http://armadelartworks.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=130838440 130838440 ghost ship http://armadelartworks.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=130838441 130838441 dark angel http://armadelartworks.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=130838442 130838442 ghost ship http://armadelartworks.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=130838443 130838443 white peacock http://armadelartworks.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=130838444 130838444 scholarship http://armadelartworks.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=130838445 130838445 city of seven sisters http://armadelartworks.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=130838446 130838446 firetower http://armadelartworks.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=130838447 130838447 isfahan http://armadelartworks.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=130838448 130838448 peace http://armadelartworks.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=130838549 130838549 the Veil http://armadelartworks.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=130945799 130945799 in the bottle http://armadelartworks.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=131552531 131552531 clonevat http://armadelartworks.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=170499840 170499840 artificial intelligence http://armadelartworks.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=170499841 170499841 musestruck http://armadelartworks.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=170499883 170499883 megalomancer http://armadelartworks.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=170502553 170502553 particle collision http://armadelartworks.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=170502554 170502554 particle collision http://armadelartworks.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=170502555 170502555 dark city http://armadelartworks.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=170502556 170502556 sustainable man http://armadelartworks.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=170502557 170502557 politics http://armadelartworks.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=170502558 170502558 particle collision http://armadelartworks.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=170502694 170502694 the game http://armadelartworks.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=170502695 170502695 http://armadelartworks.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=170505239 170505239 http://armadelartworks.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=170505240 170505240 http://armadelartworks.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=170505242 170505242 frostdragon http://armadelartworks.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=170505243 170505243 http://armadelartworks.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=170505426 170505426 the philosopher http://armadelartworks.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=176890976 176890976 the field http://armadelartworks.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=176890977 176890977 shrine of mary magdalene http://armadelartworks.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=176890978 176890978 waiting http://armadelartworks.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=176890979 176890979 airtree http://armadelartworks.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=176890980 176890980 glass mask http://armadelartworks.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=182430814 182430814 hummingbird http://armadelartworks.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=184999716 184999716 http://armadelartworks.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=185001598 185001598 http://armadelartworks.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=185001599 185001599 http://armadelartworks.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=185001600 185001600 http://armadelartworks.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=185001601 185001601 http://armadelartworks.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=185001602 185001602 http://armadelartworks.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=185494176 185494176 think about it. http://armadelartworks.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=185924133 185924133 http://armadelartworks.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=188387310 188387310 http://armadelartworks.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=188387311 188387311 http://armadelartworks.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=188387312 188387312 war in heaven http://armadelartworks.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=189476008 189476008
