Layers within layers of life forms
In water, cells and structures
Microscopic shapes and shadows
Held inert for a moment within the light
When I woke to this image I was reminded of looking through a microscope
and seeing the invisible layers of life within water and leaf litter.
My father used to make up ‘brews’ of rice and tap water and dried grass leaves and let them sit for days,
and then spread a drop of the liquid on to a glass slide and show us
the tiny one-celled creatures that lived invisible within the world.
It always seemed utterly miraculous and for some years in my childhood I thought of it as magic!
This painting also seemed to me to be Aboriginal in style and symbolic of how we see the world around us.
