The symbol of the crown has featured in my work for many years. Chantal describes the alchemical significance wonderfully in her description of her bronze Alchemy Crown.
For me the crown has come to describe my relationship with my own self importance. The less paletable side of my ego and vanity. My sense of self importnace that at times inflates.
In the destruction of an old painting to create a new surface I hope to have in some way acknowleded that creation works through me rather than by my will alone. The inverted golden triangles signify an inverted crown.
