Artists create images that speak a thousand words as artists use symbolic language to paint an image. Language utilises the images inside your mind and enables you to describe them. The images give the language emotional value, they breathe life into prose. They coexist, they are a necessary duality or hieroglyphic importance. 


Symbols create metaphors that require analysis and deduction. the riddle lies in front of you, the holder keeps the key.


Imagination is the gate to concept. It is a realm where theory, fact and fantasy can collide.




As divine intelligence walks hand in hand with natural science we can balance absolute reason with unabridged Ontologism. Shackles loosen, eyes widen, the hemispheres unite.


Human perception in itself is emotional, irrational, subjectable to change, attitudes are temporary, senses are influenced, definitions evolve and these account for great changes in beliefs and values over time. Waves of Christianity, socialism, stoicism, Coptic philosophy, fashion trends & common hair styles mould and shape society and the individual. The human race at present displays a multitude of beliefs, eras undergo lifestyle changes that are integral to the common belief system of the age. The further back we are able to reach into history we find that conscious shifts flow between styles, religions, political stances, they are as natural as a tide flowing in and out at a shore front. Patterns emerge across societies and individuals. and era with unbalanced pillars is an era of depression, regression and of war.


We see that The Post-Enlightenment society we find ourselves in today undervalues emotional intelligence and relies primarily on developments in science, rational thinking and logic. This in itself is a relatively recent conscious shift starting in the late 1600’s at the beginning of the Age of Reason. Consequently the modern world primarily reflects a reliance on reductionism and reason; an opposition to the pre-enlightenment shift towards Ontologism. Both represented an unbalance which clouds human perception. 

Self awareness, adaptability, confit management, influence, morality, euphoria, temptation, love & death are abstract realities, they are subjects that have no physical matter, they exist as relations of the human mind. Emotional intelligence is essential to be able to contemplate, understand and participate in the human world, an integral sector of the structure and behaviour of the universe. These non-material subjects cannot simply be calculated or standardised. Art acts as a platform to discuss these abstractions through visual information as art capitalises on the brains visual expertise for colours and shapes. Heiroglyps, memes, flags, facial expressions, advertisements, emoticons; art has a unique ability to use an image in place of words, it is a valid method of human communication. Individuals interact with visual information continuously, these symbols have a profound influence on human perception and understanding. 


Art has become a vessel that perpetuates society reducing emotional intelligence and abstract thinking to basic and fundamental truths. The reductionism in the academic world has seen parallels in both the art and philosophical world, both are experiencing severe reductions to formulaic basic truths. Fundamental truths do not fit subjects that experience change, chaotic adaption through the present. The inability to redce topics to fundamental truths is not only apparent in the world of science and philosophy, vast areas of quantum mechanics, topology, predicting the move and speed of an electron, subatomic principles, magnetism and sound waves find themselves in abstraction.


 Balancing the three pillars is a reaction to this conscious shift and we welcome the viewers into a world of symbols that promote liberation the subconscious, to develop a well balanced understanding of human perception. the journey begins at the decomposition of the nigredo, the beginning of a mass awakening to finalise the magnum opus.


Tighe-Mearns-Smith invite open the door to a future that demonstrates a balance of the human mind that is in turn reflected in a well developed society. An emotionally intelligent, rational & open minded society; a true Era of Redemption.



Utopia is a state of mind.



They deny themselves the questions that they truly seek in fear of what they may learn. They search for descriptive answer, hard perceptive facts, and when they cannot find them, the wonder is repressed.


Ignorance is bliss when you live in a cave.


A good beginning is not enough. The distance between the start and the end is great and many will fall.




When man developed from ape there became a well defined sense of creative will, a conscious freedom as well as a neatly structured jaw. What man does with his conscious development is down to the individual, to do nothing is to only differ at the latter.



 Be weary of the confusion between love and infatuation, between utopia and perilous hell.



People laugh at what they understand. Not because it’s necessarily funny, but it’s the easiest way to come to terms with a situation. 



Seeing that there is a three-fold world, elementary, celestial and intellectual, every inferior is governed by its superior and receive the influence and virtues thereof.


The natural philosophy teaches us of the utilisation of natures contain. the mathematical philosophy teaches us of the quantity of natural and celestial bodies. The theological philosophy, the arcane of the three, teaches us of God, that of mind where angels meet demons, that of the soul, few will reach out to it, fewer will conquer. 

The blind eye first turns to the void of day before it meets with sweet sunlight. 


As cosmic evolution rose with the formulation of the nebular hypothesis we too rise above abnormality. The youthful sun births us as it feeds us as we see hydrogen become human. 

The basis, the foundation, the subject and receptacle of all celestial rays in which influences and seminal virtues are contained. It is the fountain from which everything

Gaze inwards as you learn from the three fold worlds; draw from the virtues thrice from each corner before returning to the self as a soul redeemed.



A real world chess player doesn’t sit on the table at which both Kings and Queens fall.


Know internally as you beware what that knowledge teaches your audience about yourself.


The apparent ignorance of admitting ignorance is outshone by the value and importance of transcendental evolution.



You can spend forever wondering if you should have made the other decision, but you’ll do that either way. Choose morals. Once you’ve made that decision live with it, don’t waste your time thinking about another reality as you will miss out on the one that you choose. If you regret use it to improve. Dictate the path you wish to lead.



You cannot dictate all that is around you, but what goes on in your mind is under your guidence.


Remember the two cores, the brain and the heart, the two brains. Release your anima, acquit your animus.


We must begin by learning from within ourselves. As we stare into that inner place where thoughts collide with emotion, the abyss teaches us of the vehemence of the powerhouse, the core of the sapien. 


The natural death affirms to the body that once was not enough. As phoenix rises brilliantly the sapien comes into being by himself.


The greatest peace is known to the pertinacious self; the conqueror of the secret of endurance; the obstinate of the world within.




Slip sweetly into the Nigredo, rope in hand as you hope to resurface before your projected shadow chokes you in the night. Time below the surface is limited, it is a place where more than oxygen is depleted, those that overstay never fully recover.


Beneath the Id and Ego the animus and anima reside at the bottom of the abyss of the collective unconscious. They are two primary anthropomorphic archetypes. Formed by the archetypal plane, the animus and anima sit in the realm of predisposition. As holistic and analytic must unite, so must masculofemininity open the gate of the unconscious. The a priori nature of these inner oppositions are independent of personal experience, they transcend the psyche. It is down there that we connect our opposite whole, as day meets night. The animus coincides with the patrilineal Logos as the anima accords to the maternalistic Eros. To connect with this inner archetype is to become whole. It is to find the conscious spiritual carnation of the masculofeminine. These contra-sexual archetypes bridge between our walking conscious with our subconscious, they allow us to experience the other. Here we connect with those at level with our innate emotional drives. As they are promoted to us in the raw symbolic dream we learn to unchain ourselves from the conscious inhabitation to see inwards. As the precomissure speaks metaphors of importance, we must listen or forget. Growth of the individual cannot come from suggestion but more importantly from their own natural self. True self realisation is anchored within and will not be readily reeled upwards from an outer perspective. To get into the mind of the self we must speak with colour, symbol and metaphor. Violence will come through suggestion, it must grow from within.  



Sensory impacts from the outside world alter our subsequent perception of it, which in turn creates a modified quake that further adjusts our perception.
