This piece was produced in part to continue the DNA series, but also in response to the theme of an exhibition entitled Life, Death, Gene, Flesh. During many of my visionary experiences, dreams and meditations, a common motif is that of watching eyes, as if some kind of inner self is gazing back at me, the consciousness who is viewing the experience, and occasionally I have thought to characterise this as an Inner Will of which I am not always in control: it is as if this is a deeper, older - perhaps primate or reptilian - aspect of my being that has an evolved set of desires, such as the desire to procreate, which are often independent of my own conscious desires. I feel that these are ultimately founded upon the basic replication function of biological DNA - all things to strive to reproduce, and in a way, my art is a symbolic attempt towards this end.
