Clock of the Time Dragon
“Clock of the Time Dragon”
2 Piece Glow-in-the-Dark Abstract Acrylic on Canvas – August 2016

This is a glow in the dark painting. I wanted to paint an abstract and experiement with painting a two-canvas set. Now there are many theories and ideas that emerged during the live stream during which this was painted. Some saw clocks, others compasses or protractors, dragons, fire and even koi fish.

But for me, what emerged is something that reminds me of the idea of the Clock of the Time Dragon in the Wicked series by Gregory Maguire. That “clock” is a symbol of the mechanization of society that reveals the secrets of their past and present and predicts what will happen in the future. It wavers and changes and isn’t wholly honest with what is contained within. But, perhaps.. this clock hints of the power that comes from within.
