Is painting similar to Irish dancing, but upside down?

A painting is a recording of movement. The hand traverses the canvas, endlessly restless, adding and subtracting pigment, shapes and marks, it is rarely static. The eye follows this motion and briefly rests in a particular location, only to resume the short journey across the picture plane. It is impossible to take in a picture in its entirety, it doesn't happen. Our way of seeing ensures that we construct and reconstruct an image in our mind, like a delinquent scanner, eschewing straight lines and conformity. A theorist might say it was something to do with the gestalt; an integration of processes. If you were to describe the act of painting as a form of dance you would be closer to the truth, albeit circumscribed like a reverse Irish jig with minimal lower body movement. Everything is in the wrist, hand and arm movements, apart from an occasional step back to replenish a palette.

Paul Klee was aware that the reality we have been trained to accept is mere fiction. We are sleepwalkers in our own worlds, living each day as if we had a grasp on what a life should be and how it ought to be conducted. We are taught how to see, think, know and understand. Yet we understand so little. Paul Klee created paintings that connected with the inner world of the spirit and the transcendent world of the heart and mind. For him, the physicality of painting is fundamental, it reminds us of the material body, that we are mortal, that we also are objects both seen and seeing.

The symbolism of trees is legendary, from enlightenment and wisdom to protection and guidance they occupy an ancient terrain. Forests multiply the psychic power of the tree, they tower above us and outlive us tenfold, they are silent witnesses to long-forgotten events. The forest floor teems with life, alternately breaking down matter and regenerating new growth without the distractions of recognition or reward.
