Brain Project 2018

The Mind's Eye

The eye in this design represents the mind’s eye and allows the viewer to see into the mind of the artist. Two seahorses represent the hippocampus. Concentric rings with birds, fish, diamonds and petals well up and radiate from the centre, unfolding through highly charged brain squiggles. It is a snapshot of something that is constantly morphing and shifting, and the viewer can imagine new shapes and images that could emerge. The possibilities are as infinite and complex as the depths of the human mind. The artist says he wants to share something deep within himself, “which I believe all of humankind share, an organic Wi-Fi that connects everyone, all we need to do is turn on the switch…is yours on?”


Dave is a self-taught artist whose practice has developed from 2-dimensional drawing to stain glass to 3-dimensional sculpture. Dave began drawing in his own unique style with ink on wood. His drawings are inspired by nature. Insects, animals, and plants can all be found in repetitive detail in his artworks. His use of the mandala evolved as he became more interested in the fractal mathematical structure of his drawings.  His most important work to-date was produced over a 18-year period and contains numerous personal deities that protect the

palace of his inner mind.
