These works generate an informal temporal performative experience. Each painting has been constructed in a way that allows them to change with hands on engagement from the audience. The paintings are made up of parts, each part is self supporting. The audience is encouraged to, be playful, be curious, engage, become co-creators in the composition of the paintings.
The action to participate with the multiple parts of the painting creates an ever-changing outcome. The choice is there to be involved or reflect on the artwork in its constant state of flux. The invitation to engage with the evolution of the work is symbolic of the process to explore relationships between the work and others in the space. The interactive painting can be seen as an analogy for our social structures, our sense of community and our relationship with the environment.
The basic shape of the painting is a circle. “Symbolically, The Circle depicts the unending, the unknowable, the un-measurable, the un-graspable and the indefinable aspects of Eternity which surpass and baffle our rational minds.” - Joseph Panek.
The twenty first century is characterised by uncertainty but also by choice.
