Looking Back, Going Forward

Looking Back, Going Forward


32 x 24

Life if full of challenges. But much of what we see as “new” is often something that has already been done before. Fashion, for example, come and go – only to return again for another generation to discover them anew.

And life is like that too. Often, we find ourselves in situations similar to those we have previously experienced. Indeed, it’s because of this that past experience is so important for present success. Yet, we live in a world where experience is valued less and less with each passing day. In Looking Back, Going Forward , I have represented important experiences as large prominent areas of a continuous looped pathway and new experiences in the “here and now” are represented by changing colors along the pathway.
