This painting was first conceived as purely abstract, with green, blue and brown colors that evoked the feeling of walking through a dense forest, perhaps a jungle, during or right after heavy rain. I used this as a metaphor for going through life not knowing what’s going to happen and when! To this end I added the bright red disc in the area which is most illuminated of the painting to suggest tragedy at the core of our life journey. This was the first time I add a disc to my work. I liked the look of it and what it represented that it inspired the group of works that followed.
