About "Paradox 4"
Discussion of artwork
Bits fell off planes every day, or so it seemed. And collisions and near misses were also on the up. So the film was a kind of a lie, because by existing it said: “Observe the lengths we go to for your security – we’ll even make a movie about it, style instead of substance, the image instead of reality.”
-- Salman Rushdie, Satanic Verses p. 513
In this piece Albrecht Altdorfer’s painting The Battle of Alexander at Issus has been used to create the image of a movie set. The painting was photocopied several times so that images are replicated, and form a pattern. This is a reference to the way in which we conform to patterns in our lives, and throughout the history of humankind, without realising that we do so.
The quote makes reference to how congested we have become and how movies describe our lives for us. There isn’t even much space left in the sky anymore. We have succeeded in making a garbage heap of outer space, where discarded satellites and other pieces of debris are “thrown away”. And yet we are told that this is acceptable and somewhere in the back of minds we believe that this doesn’t concern us.
The painting’s frame consists of pieces of smashed cameras, film, reflective devices and capturing devices in keeping with the cinematic theme. The Mickey Mouse Club emblem is centred in the apex of the frame. Most of us grew up with Disney cartoons and in the element of cartoon there is the notion that we can smash somebody up and he or she will get up again.

As a shaman, many of my images are expressions of the deep metaphors and images I encounter on my explorations into the other spaces.
