Amazing! Love the use of protective syntethic geometry to pull one into and out of the image.

This is definitely you at the top of your game - both abstarct and representative - worthy of a position with the best poster art.

Really gorgeous and amazing. I have little vocabulary that is useful, but I like the weird villi and the machine being together in the eye and I especially like the colours and - well, I don't know. I feel like this is major stuff. If I was rich, I would try to buy it. Crappily, I'm not.

Thanks for sharing this work. Now I'm off to look at your blog. I've seen more good art today than I could find in a week of traipsing about shops. this thing oughtta be in a museum. Except I should own it, instead, and the museum should only have an excellent copy.

pg333 ~ what makes you rich is what you feel and think when viewing any piece of artwork and the fact that nobody can ever take those emotions away from you...thanks for the incredible compliments

p.s. little vocabulary? that's funny because the poetry was excellent on your blog!!!:)
