Two Worlds

Heather Stivison Heather Stivison


On panel with glass, this painting is built up of multiple thin layers of semi-transparent oil paint. As I began moving towards the idea of using water as a metaphor for “going deep” into one’s own mind, the sense of weightlessness and depth were critical, as was the somewhat dangerous feel of being lost in the tangle. In describing the hazards that may face an “adventurer and circumnavigator of that inner world called ‘human being,’” Nietzsche said, “He enters a labyrinth, and multiplies a thousandfold the dangers that life in itself brings with it – of which not the least is that nobody can see how and where he loses his way, becomes solitary, and is torn to pieces by some cave-minotaur of conscience.”
