Tree of Life derives from my interest in science and has driven me
as an artist to view how profoundly connected we are to a vast fine-tuned
universe that has in the past 75 years brought about an extrordinary
higher consciousness of our place in the universe. This emergent view now touches all of us to the extent we are the participatory
guardians of precious planetary life and this consciousness may well
point us towards spreading life throughout the solar system and beyond...
None of this will be possible without respect and reverence for mother
life and science. I chose to symbolically configure mankind evolving with awe, science
and space from an initial cosmic birth with the possibility we were
seeded by interstellar organic molecules---perhaps carried
in the flight of
a comets tail or from the luminous dust of a supernova. This painting
suggests that mankind is now poised to take adventure, science, hope
and discovery into the greater Universe.
