“‘Everything arises due to the confluence of causes and conditions. Simple life forms arise from within the primal soup that gave birth to us all. Both the painting itself as well as that which it depicts arose due to very specific causes and conditions – never to be repeated in exactly the same way again.
Like most of my recent work, ‘Conditioned Arising’ started as a drawing, one which established both linear structure of the forms as well as the value range. The painting consists of successive layers of transparent glazes followed by selective applications of opaque colors.” – Ketelhut
