This piece is part of a series of works created for a solo exhibition titled, ‘Cloud Games’. As children we sometimes played a popular game that you might know. In the game we’d lie on our backs, stare at the sky and see what images we could make out in the shapes of the clouds. I found it fascinating when my mind would see a cloud in one instant and then a dragon or a the profile of a face in the next and then flicker magically back to being a cloud again. I later learned that there is a scientific term for this phenomenon - ‘pareidolia’. It’s a psychological mechanism that we humans use everyday to create meaning in the world. The works in the series explore the threshold at which pareidolia occurs which seems to operate on a spectrum from abstract to meaningful depending on the subject’s state of mind. The paintings seek to evoke a similar experience in the viewer.
