Acrylic on canvas
120 x 90cm
I am overwhelmed by awe when I think about the diversity of nature, from the plant world to the animal kingdom and the vastness of human kind. To think that every piece of information before our eyes is a self-replicating binary fractal experiencing itself through infinite possibility.
That every one of us is a glitch in the algorithms of DNA, the hereditary material of life, a malfunction in our Godly system, a random selection of possibilities built on top of previous ancestral codes within natures ‘Samsara’ machine....
Glitches and mutations are essential to evolution, they are the raw material of genetic variation. Without glitches in codes, evolution could not occur and thus life itself. Evolution is an endless algorithm grinding away at ever-changing patterns, but it's also bound by its own history.
It’s such a scared animal instinct to disregard this phenomenon, to judge and cast wars on indifference (skin colour, religion and politics). To not tolerate natures infinite spectrum as she attempts to teach us of the diversity we behold within our DNA and the possibilities we possess if we preserve and cultivate the codes we all share here on planet Earth.
Variation and acceptance of this diversity is the key to love, to be proud of your indifferences to others and vise versa. Whether it be physical or psychological, stand alone with your individuality and shine your own light.
This being said stay away from the ‘norm’ it has been created for you by society to dampen the process of true love and acceptance for all, it will never serve you to your highest potential.
'Glitch' Original Canvas
Every original canvas has been hand painted with immense gratitude and love by Joey Baker.
The paintings range from weeks to months of work depending on their detail, every single piece has travelled the world extensively sometimes to multiple continents before being finished. From Jungles to deserts, Volcanoes to Tropical Islands, from Palaces to Temples to street corners and everywhere in between. They are my personal account of the world I experience.
Each canvas is painted with high quality acrylic paint onto Berlin based Gesso Canvas. The paintings once finished have then been double varnished in Golden © Semi-Gloss Varnish for the best results for both vibrancy and protection, they have then been individually bespoke framed.
Every Original Canvas also comes with:
Signed COA (Certificate of Authenticity)
Original A4 Drawing
Hand Embellished Canvas Print (of your choice & size)
