The ideas behind Buddhist meditation inspired me to paint 4D7. The painting consists of a continuous flow of layered imagery forming a stream of consciousness, where the past, present and future co-exist at the same moment. The compositional technique is like writing, moving from left to right, and the images primarily overlap this way. This overlapping fashion is due to the order in which I painted this artwork, where my train of thought started in the red and developed progressively through black over to the blue. These transformations are, to me, reminiscent of the slow fades in cinema, which always tend to signify transition in time. Also the linearity of the piece is like the strip of film.
