Like my other paintings, this image appeared in my mind during waking hours as a fully formed, moving and sensory tableau, with the practice of painting allowing me to interpret the image. Though parts of it remain somewhat opaque, it appears to be a continuation of the tableau in my other painting, titled FN. The figures in the water are human rather than serpent, as in FN, and the dove still descends from the sky over the water. This painting appears to describe what the Platonists called the “emanation of the One”, or perhaps the “celestial hierarchy” as described by Pseudo Dionysius.
