OIL, 24 x 36 inch, The Drain, © St Germain
No, no sleep yet, after I switched off the light and closed my eyes!
Normally I would have been impatient, wondering what
was going on, but the images I saw were so riveting,
that I was immediately involved with the view in front of me.
Had to think several days before I knew how
to paint this, because what I saw coming out of the drain
was a pale colored inflated bag. To just color the bag,
would make it look like a balloon – wrong choice,
because it’s often associated with celebrations
or birthdays! I ended up with the upper part of an
air balloon, – indicating that one needs to rise higher
than living in sewage! –
something that is inflated, is highlighting that God
was flagging what was underneath the drain!
Sewage is not a kosher subject, but it’s pretty clear
what God means with this.Things so disgusting
we want to get rid of and hide it from our surface life,
so the first impression is we are dealing with our waste issues.
But an inflated bag is like a flag,
to really investigate what our ugly and smelly stuff
underneath the surface. It is ESSENTIAL!
