STASIS

While evading pain, distress and complication can provide a measure of artificial sanctuary, the stasis that it entails holds its own quiet entropy. Despite the outward appearance of vitality, the suspension of reality silently suffocates actual life and consumes valuable energy in order to preserve the comfortable security of inertia. The mandala, as a symbolic microcosm, represents this process (and also signifies realisation of the escape from it) though the composition of hundreds of layers of living and dying flora. Existence, shrunken into a manageable and predictable facsimile of life is vacant of meaning and in order to actually live, I must overcome the fear of risk and danger of engaging with the world by letting go of what needs to die and embracing new growth and vitality.
