The eagle dives into the center while a long-legged elephant approaches.
Venus simultaneously evolves and rises, sprouting two interchangeable heads, a happy moment in light of the prevailing gravity.
The artist is unavoidably and continuously conscious and sensitive, not just to his own reality at each moment of life, but also the prevailing material, psychological, political circumstances and key events around the world at large. Kandinsky defines the ability, indeed the necessity of art to synthesize all of these influences as the purpose and the quintessence of art, which both encapsulates and transcends it’s own time. 
In my own case I use the language of myths, dreams, fantasies and at certain times raw, brute reality. Hence the ever-present fundamental dualities of male-female, human-animal, conscious-unconscious, good-evil have a resonance or echo here, as in most of my work. 
The painting had been emerging over several months. I was conscious of the entire gamut of contents and stimuli, both intrapersonal and extra-personal, conscious and subconscious with the present coronavirus pandemic impinging on my mind especially at the time of completion.
Pure pigment on canvas permits a lucid flowing and blending of acidic colors and forms and the sharp delineation of shapes and details. Strips of canvas and a thick, rippled impasto ground underneath the picture surface gives the painting a physical, near organic presence and the additional duality of physicality and illusion.

Bruce Sherratt was born in England in 1944, the son of a coal miner. His gift for drawing and painting was recognized early and he began studying art full-time at age fifteen. As a young art student he was inspired by the early surrealist masters. Shortly after obtaining a degree in painting Bruce fulfilled a youthful ambition by travelling to Mexico where he settled, quickly establishing his own identity as a surrealist painter and exhibiting in Guadalajara, San Francisco and Mexico City. In the early 1970s he became interested in theories and the psychology of artistic creativity. Focusing primarily on fantasy as a stimulus for developing creative/imaginative skills he was awarded an advanced degree in art education at the University of Wales. Bruce then embarked on a rich and varied two-fold career as a practicing-exhibiting artist and teacher whose fundamental raison d'etre remains his own painting. Sherratt became interested in comparative religions and philosophies and in particular the work of Rudolf Steiner, especially the latter's work on colour theory; all of which had a profound effect on his work both as an artist and art educator. Bruce Sherratt has lived and worked in Canada, the United States, Germany, Africa, South America, Sri Lanka, the Philippines, Malaysia, Indonesia and currently in Ubud,Bali where he founded and runs his own art center and gallery - Bali Center For Artistic Creativity (BCAC) and Bruce Sherratt Gallery Of Tropical Surrealism. His travels have deeply influenced his work and its development. Nowadays Bruce's time and energies are focused at his home, studio and Art Center in Bali where paints, teaches and lives with his wife and teenage son.
