Through the eyes of John Parson
Go ahead. Have fun. Pick up your laptop computer and turn it around, or lean to one side...or look at it from upside down. but keep your eyes on this work, for turn it as you will, you will always find stairs that lead you upward.
The tree is an ancient symbol of life. Do we see a metaphor within this work?
Does life travel in a circle around a mystical inner paradise? Are we forever destined to climb or descend to find the answer.
Oh, the unending mystery of art!
You have to check John's website out. John has all the tools for success and he is working hard to re-establish himself back in Canada, after a lengthly hiatus in New Zealand and Australia.
