Derek Des Islets       Peter Blackwood

Derek Des Islets’ paintings are intuitively formed and spiritually guided visual descriptions of the quantum nature of reality. Using images of scientific instruments as a compositional bedrock shows the path of energy/thought/feeling through the work. The fusion of the biological signature of a beating heart denoted as an electrocardiograph measurement and time; using lines is, in essence, a visual description of life. These linear elements are used as metaphorical “packets” of memory/emotion with differing values of length, width and hue. The globular (bulbous) elements serve as a spiritual capacitor on canvas and are a catalyst for the emergence of the connections within the paintings. These works aim to act as a codex to the universe in a language that is unable to be comprehended. More at
