Additional Information

The Infinite Source is a personal philosophic expression of what I believe is the “infinite source” of all we do and achieve: The Idea.
The ability to imagine an idea is a common trait of all humans and is infinitely boundless across all races regardless of geography, politics or religion.
The energy of thought beginning like a glowing seed in the male figure’s head flows around and back through his hands, where with the amorphous masses that abstractly represent any kind of matter, is transformed into everything and anything, springing upward like an endless fountain. I symbolise humans in ideal perfection by creating the man to look like the classical image of a Greek God-like figure.
I put woman, nurturing a family, in the middle of a driving cog and coloured them to emphasis my belief that families are the core and axis of our physical existence, but women too play a very important role in our socially binding. The faces-within-faces to the above right of the woman form is a reference to other relationships including extended family, friends and colleagues with whom we all inter-depend. We are social beings after all.
The big cog, in which the family is centre, then drives all we generate and create for our well-being and progress. I turned to my love of paper and built the story based on the paper industry, shown with rolls and swirls of sheets of the material, references to electric motors, cutting mechanisms and other machinery. There are also references to digital intelligence with numbers and symbols spread throughout. It winds and twirls off in all directions into infinity.
Only very recently completed, the work was created piecemeal over a period of more than 10 years and is technically the most complicated piece I have ever done. Created in Australian Blue Lake Paper Mill, handmade 100% cotton rag papers weighing 1000gsm, it is surface sized and requires only regular dusting to keep clean.  Installation requires attachment of split battens to chosen wall location.  These are supplied and allow the art to be hung with a clean invisible hanging device perfect for a contemporary interior.
