The Aha Moment


Vitrine @ Platform – April 2007


The image came to me in a flash – hence the title The Aha Moment and then I analysed the symbology of the piece, which satisfied my intent of creating an image of an idea.


The mirror symbolises the imagination or consciousness its capacity to reflect the formal reality of the visible world.


The gnomes – relate to helpful dwarfs which symbolise little creative impulses or good ideas that may save a lot of trouble - the valuable playful and childlike side of man.


The pointed hats refer to forces aimed at becoming conscious as the new shoot of  a plant is pointed to push up from the earth (unconscious)
