ARIUMS​​​​​​​ (series) 
Arium is a suffix which often denotes a location or receptacle - on the model of vivarium, herbarium, aquarium, insectarium, terrarium. It is seen in many words that denote an artificial environment.
This​ ​series​ ​is​ ​the​ ​result​ ​of​ ​a​ ​philosophical​ ​investigation​ in which I explored the idea that ​one can go around to the other side​ of the work and see it as though in a mirror when painting on transparent substrate.​ This ​gave​ ​me​ ​an​ ​understanding​ ​of​ ​the idea of the dialectical​ ​consciousness​ ​and​ ​consequently an​ ​interest in​ ​the​ ​philosophy​ ​of​ ​becoming.​  ​​​​​​​see a video here: https://myvanwygibson.com/whoistheartist​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
