Candyss painted this abstract work while painting the series ‘Out of my Mind, Into the Fire’. The series was an abstract enquiry into the ebb and flow of life – the constant change, the paths we decide upon, and The ups and downs of life.
“Where are we going? How are we connected to everything? These are the questions that raise interesting answers in my mind and lead me into meditation every day where I find my own inner answers. In a way, the darkness of ignorance turns into the light of knowledge. I am often focused on the inner ‘flame’ of consciousness and the way the fire of passion sometimes burns brightly and dims at other times.
‘Infinite Highway’ was painted in thick paint with a lot of medium. I used my fingers to scratch into the paint and my body became very much a part of the process as I intuitively moved the paint around. I then drizzled enamel paint over the top creating a more interesting maze like effect. I enjoy every painting but this one was a lot of fun.”
