“The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift.” – Albert Einstein

Often things are lying hidden in the Unconscious. You have to leave yourself open so that these influences may surface.

We should not pretend to understand the world only by the intellect; we apprehend it just as much by feeling. Therefore, the judgment of the intellect is, at best, only the half of truth, and must, if it be honest, also come to an understanding of its inadequacy. – C.G.Jung

The ‘I Ching’ is based on the hypothesis of the Oneness of man and the surrounding cosmos. –  Jolande Jacobi, ‘Symbols in an Individual Analysis’ Man and His Symbols (Carl Jung)

My thoughts turned to the The I-Ching or Book Of Changes as I was painting this. I’ve got a copy of the translation by Richard Wilhelm with foreword by C.G.Jung.  It talks about ‘discord’ and ‘divergence’ in a particular hexagram, saying that yellow is the colour of The Mean (Philosophy of The Mean).  The Philosophy of the Mean links to the Buddhist Middle Way.  There are links between The I-ching, Buddhism and Quantum Mechanics.

“The emptiness of the atom”

The Book of Changes also speaks  about discord and divergence ‘containing the hidden possibility that tensions have already been resolved.’  It talks of ‘Astronomical opposition’ and ‘The two movements that are in direct contrast’ but that also work together.  This is relevant to this painting and to my thoughts on emotional and intellectual cognition.

‘How to both join and separate things?’

The title for this piece comes from the I-Ching itself.  It is named after two hexagrams – Nº 28, ‘Ta Kuo’ or ‘Preponderence of The Great’, which talks about extreme forces, collapse and the centre of gravity being a thick beam. The other hexagram is Nº 11, ‘T’ai’ or ‘Peace’ and refers to ‘The Receptive’ and ‘The Creative’.  Nº 11 states that The Receptive is essential to The Creative. Hexagram Nº 11 also talks of harmony. It speaks of the dividing of time and the ‘marking off of infinite space’.  We make maps in the chaos, we mark off time and the seasons and find patterns in our Universe.

This was exhibited at IMPRINT, a Fabelist Festival at The Serpentine Gallery’s Centre of Possible Studies, 21 Gloucester Place W1U 8HR
