Scientific advancement is expressed through the use of systems of
representation bound to science, religion and art, which are in tune
with a post modernism context.  Such visual language is used to
satisfy an internal need to express a system of ideas and universal
beliefs. In my scientific endeavour there are a number of enigmatic
symbols, marks and tokens applied on the surface of the canvas to
evoke universal values and to express this pilgrimage to discover a hidden order.

The use of nuclear and atomic symbols offers the viewer
multiple layers of meaning.  On one level the symbols used suggest a
narrative order / sequence.  But beneath that surface representation
and the obvious visual hierarchy (where each symbol appears to be
positioned to suggest an order implied importance) and within another
layer there exists a subtle dialogue between symbols, a pull of
opposites and another layer of meaning.

Such visual language is used to satisfy an internal
need to express a system of ideas and universal beliefs…

scientific endeavour there are a number of enigmatic symbols, marks
and tokens applied on the surface of the canvas to evoke universal
values and to express this pilgrimage to discover a hidden order…

Various veils with spiritual and scientific associations are
developed to highlight a divine order. Micro-organisms, atoms,
nucleus, neutrons and protons are present to symbolize our nuclear
roots. (Word document)
