Adding a new link

September 15, 2021


“To my mind one does not put oneself in place of the past, one only adds a new link.” - Paul Cézanne

I was is the first in a series of images, the Chakra Series, photographed from a wonderful old vinyl chair at the home of my friends, the Coverts, in Cody, Wyoming.



My interpretation of this simple image depicts a child in the Mother’s womb, the beginning of a new link, as Cezanne describes.  The past tense title references the creation of a unique child from the DNA of its parents, the nine months of nurture, and the wonder and miracle of life that creates a new link to the past.

This series also correlates to Chakras from early traditions of Hinduism. The next image in the series, I am, represents our individuality.

The cracks from the aging blue chair graphically depict a reminder of the focus that we gain through meditation and the essence of our being.

I Speak and I Know are shown in more detail on my website.  If you have an interest in any other work in the Chakra Series, I will be happy to send you a link directly.  I also have small prints of the complete series framed in 11" x 14” white frames. Please contact me here. Thank you!
