A reflection upon the evolutionary inversion from aquatic to terrestrial life I used to be Within the Sea; An identity Of You and Me; Submerged In Commonality Of Sounding; Between Airy Heights And Bottom Depths; Waving Correspondence; Through Inseparable Togetherness Of Content with Context. But, Now, Dry; Abstracted Space comes between Us; A separating distance; An unbecoming Outside; Alienating Forms As Fixtures; Stranded in Isolation; Entities; Non-identities; Conflicting; Oblivious of Our Belonging Together. Oxygen; Now, moving Fast; Not Languidly; Tans our Hides; Protecting Our Inner Spaces Against its own Consuming Presence; Supporting Combustion; Burning Us Out. But all this sealing; Removes Our Feeling; Setting Our Content At Odds with Our Context; So that we push Against the Pull; With Backs to Front; Itching to Relieve Unbearable Friction. And So Now Just Let’s Go And, with Loving Fear Dive into the Clear And Swim Where it’s Cool To be In With the Pool Together.

About the Artist

Dr. Alan Rayner has been expressing awareness of Natural Inclusion through his art for over fifty years using oils, acrylics, watercolors and inks on a variety of surfaces. He has acquired a colorful, technically unrefined, symbolic style in order to depict imaginary scenes that would come into mind ‘out of the blue’ while drawing inspiration from the natural world.
