19. Col Jordan (NSW)
Acrylic on canvas, 100 x 100 cm
“Metamorphosis is the change that takes place at the birth of a new reality. Interlock marks such an event. It presents two realities: a subdued pessimism crossed by a vital and radically different new reality which ‘springs forth’ as at a birth. This reality is optimistically different to its somber origin. It is its new and better self.”
