Penelope has kindly taken the time to break down the meaning behind the pieces featured in her article: Penelope Dale x Art Mathmatician. The meaning attributed to each piece is further proof that Penelope is not your everyday artist, she carefully considers the purpose behind her creations. What I have come to admire about her work is the intellectual strength behind each and every piece, never shying away from a basic or simplistic meaning. Penelope happily combines her love of art with maths, encouraging us to take a deeper look into human relationships and the relationship we have with our-self. She playfully tricks your mind with her work, knowing the reasons behind her pieces I now question if I'm drawn to a piece because of the meaning attributed to it or is the parabolic curves, maybe it's a combination of both.
Transference is a representation of unconscious redirection of feelings from one entity to another.
Segregation is the action or state of setting someone or something apart from others. The separation of people has always been widely present within civilisation, and so in this application it refers to the separation of a singular being or collective beings from others. On a cellular level the separation of cells is fundamental to our evolution and growth. In developing the Self, it is imperative an individual removes themselves from the pre-constructs of society in order to reach higher perspectives. There can be beneficial consequences to the segregation of something or someone.
Convergence symbolises the act of converging, especially moving toward union or uniformity. In Mathematics converging lines are two or more lines that get closer and closer towards the end, in a metaphysical sense the converging of two entities moving forward on the same path towards unity.
Creation is based upon the Hexad, bringing perfection, structure and order. By the multiplication of two and three, even and odd, six is also the number of creation; with a cosmos made in six days being a common theme in scripture. The radius of a circle can be swung through its circumference in exactly six identical arcs to inscribe a regular hexagon; and six circles perfectly fit around one (creating the Flower of Life). Thus it is the first perfect number.
Twin Flame is essentially the concept of soul mates. Soul mates are streams of consciousness cut from the same whole. Once you reach a certain level of consciousness or a higher frequency level in one life, your soul has to split in two in order to come back down into a physical body. In each “twin” there is a magnetic attraction, so when you meet your Twin Flame there is an instant feeling of ‘knowing’ and connection; it is a re-connection of the One Soul. Your intrinsic qualities will provide similar personality traits and the ability to reflect the light and shadow sides of each other. At human level it involves the awareness, balance and integration of our masculine and feminine components, raising individual and joint consciousness. The Twin Flame relationship can be seen as a bridge to greater understanding and integration of Love, to the Self and to others.
Synchronicity is a concept first introduced by analytical psychologist Carl Jung, which holds that events are "meaningful coincidences" and describes the temporally coincident occurrences of a-causal events. ‘Synchronicities’ are pre-programmed experiences that occur when one's DNA is programmed for a specific event in time. Your soul sending you on a journey. It was a principle that he felt encompassed his concept of the collective unconscious; descriptive of a governing dynamic that underlies the whole of human experience - historical, sociological, emotional, psychological, and spiritual.
