Wild Atlantic Wavelengths






Following on from my fascination concerning the idea that humans, along with our our entire cosmos is analogue in nature and we are not anything like the binary code DNA biological computers the New Age gurus and Transhumaists proclaim we are, I have been spending a lot of time here on the Wild Atlantic Way on the west coast of Ireland where I live, just looking at waves.

Since becoming a Wavespotter, I have come to see all the staggering diversity in wave forms and how each wave seems to have a distinct personality, like us humans. The awesome power of all that energy exploding in one final impact - just before the wave hits the coastline - contains within its mass and form - so many variables that the idea for this series of paintings came about. 

We are the wavelengths, and the wavelengths are us and all we experience.

  1. Me, too, Thomas. I love waves! My metaphor for myself is the ocean: ever changing, never changing.

  3. Waves, waves... I see here some silent suggestion that we might be much more dependent on quantum mechanics than we think. What if Newton's observations, in the end are, just snippets of illusions and say the present calculations of planets' orbits are good only because of the magic that keeps everything in 'good-proper' order. Your paintings are very impressive. :-)

  6. only every painted one picture of the beach as it happens, got it all a bit wrong like but was stoned at the time. 3 hours gone just like that. its sitting under my mams stairs now where absolutely no one can see it... ah well. nice pictures Thomas, only recently taken an interest in your work, not your painting even though there sound, your other stuff. its like your bang on the money and then your not afraid to push the boat out. fair play. never bothered with these events people talk at I've been following fringe stuff on line and radio since 1998, its all up there in the my head, shit loads, not to much I still have a life but every now and again I her something original and your it at the mo. so much so id attend an event to listen to your research for sure I reckon. hope you get to Liverpool sometime, drinks on me.
