I had been thinking about dirt and making golems out of dirt just with a squash of the hand so this painting is almost like a picture of an alchemist’s work bench if the alchemist was landscape sized, with all half formed figures being squished out of the mud. Parallel lines for me are plough furrows or swirling jets of vapour. The Red Flexer of the title has taken on its own life and is flexing with vigour.
