Ceasing the Bother from Noisy Pistons
acrylic, conte crayon and marker pen on paper
No longer being bothered by the traffic, the mind is somewhere else. Finding a quiet place for you. Escaping from the noise pollution of modern times. Can we ever not hear the low buzzing that we pretend not to hear? No peace and no quiet. Impossible to imagine what the world sounded like just a few centuries ago.

Your ears help you balance and instruct your brain of your surroundings real or imaginary. Sounds reach each ear at different times this helps you understand your environment. When sleeping you close your eyes but you brain dreams and forms images, the dreams often contain sounds and conversations. Unheard sound, maybe echoes of previous audio encounters. Ears cannot be closed when sleeping, introduced sound can influence dreams
Emulsion, spray paint & conte crayon on photo paper
A shadow is cast upon a wall. A die is cast for a result. A line is cast in pursuit of a fish. A sculpture maybe cast in bronze. Lucifer was cast out of heaven. Monkey was also cast out of heaven for eating the peaches of immortality. Humankind has cast a long shadow upon the Earth.
