The world is the tree and we are the leaves. These leaves are shed, they fall, they die, transform and they fertilize a new season of growth. It's hard for humans to accept this simple premises of a cycle of life. we struggle to give ourselves a greater meaning and in the process we destroy the tree. We forgot that the source of our existence is not us but the world that allows us to dwell in and to have a human experience.

Matthew Picton at Elizabeth Leach Gallery,Portland

Matthew Picton presents us with another body of work that besides that it is unique and expertly done also draws us into our own world of perception. These are maps not just of our environment but also how our brain interacts with the outside world to make sense inside of us so we don't lose our footing in sanity in a world that loves to edge us towards chaos.
When we fall it is important to know where we are in the spectrum of existence
and maps moral or otherwise help us to resurrect us even in times that keep pushing us down like saying after every fall we will rise again.
