COUNTER-CURRENTS

OIL ON CANVAS, 1999

A detached silver feather, blown by wind, and a fallen gold leaf web, caught in river currents, drift apart. But ducks, propelled by their self-possession of both wing feathers and feet webs, take to both air and water as they choose and so, within shifting limits, make their own ways. In these ways they create the fore and aft of a life-boat pattern, seen only from an imaginary perspective, that plies the surface of yet greater, more mysterious depths. So too might airy intellect and watery emotion be related when life’s dynamic context is fully filled.
