I have talked at great length with some of my fellow artists about this idea of a collective consciousness. I believe in it's existence so strongly that it became the title of this painting. Trees are almost always metaphors for people in my paintings and in this painting all of the "brains" or heads of the trees are connected physically. In art, it seems that we artists share in some type of joint creative source that inspires us. We aren't copying each other, I think we are led down a creative road by something else. On an even larger scale, I love to think about what would happen if every person in the whole world had one single thought at the same time. What would happen? If art can be created out of this shared aether, imagine what beautiful experiences and results could come from a world consciousness focusing on peace.
