Scatterbrained is about the beauty and joy of letting your thoughts run all over the place and tumbling into great ideas when you least expect it.
Falling into the universe's chaos to tap into your own inner energy.
Scatterebrained has a forward moving, windswept energy. But the most intense part of the "wind" is found at the center of the painting, rather than off to the side. The most powerful and potent creative chaos is within ourselves.
The abstract tumbling "thoughts" look like chromosomes during meiosis. Meiosis is the process that produces reproductive cells (spermatozoa and ova).
These cells are the cells of biological creation. Their existence reminds us of the awesome creative power we hold within ourselves.
That's because Tumblereeds is not about left and right, but rather about moving forward by connecting with your own creative chaos. Moving to the right is generally seen as moving forward.
The wind at the center of the image seems to glow. Internal creative chaos doesn't just move us; it inspires us.
The windswept "thoughts" look like chromosomes undergoing meiosis, which is the process used to create the cells of procreation. Gavo's paintings often evoke images from the microscopic world of the human body. For example, Before the Idea uses a texture that resembles human neurons and synapses.
