Landscapes of Awareness




The ancient landscape holds place and time.

Layers of time and place separate and include us,

to be here now.

PRESENCE  Rachael Wilmot

An aerial view above a prehistoric site, long forgotten, and ploughed back into the earth.  The ancient landscape is like a vessel that holds place and time.  Inside it, we follow the path, moving back through time, to stand on this hill overlooking vast forests.  Part of the ancient forest still remains, and, in the oldest colours, we can see that it all supports the same whole.  This pregnant place was the start, and each layer of landscape increases our awareness.  

 “When the oldest colours have faded, we shall rest, and lie down for an aeon or two.

SATIN SEA  Rachael Wilmot

                                ‘Blending and dissolving


We rest in an energy, like a vast satin sea.  It softly undulates and ripples like a flag in the wind.  Islands of awareness rest in the sea, and this interwoven energy causes waves in the tidal currents.  New islands are forming, creating new continents.

A whole new world of consciousness evolves into existence.

“ In the Light of Inclusion ”

The light includes everything, including yourself.

The light is absorbed into the landscape,

and creates a space to go beyond yourself.

AQUANESIA  Rachael Wilmot

Threads of connection.

Something is remembered,

like the return of Spring.

'The life of colour' is the main factor in my work.  Rather than mixing colours on the palette, I build-up layers of translucent colour.  I need to keep the colours pure so I blend, contrast, compliment, and superimpose, colours, and work through subtle transitions in layered glazes to provide light and depth.  Light is reflected within the painting rather than on the surface, leading to greater depth.  The depth is both visual and emotional.

LETTING GO  Rachael Wilmot

 Letting Go

HEAVEN'S GATE Rachael Wilmot



Substance is being melted and transformed

into light ethereal energy.

There is freedom from oppression.

Approaching Heaven’s Gate, everything is transformed.  The heaviest, densest, substance is being melted and transformed into light ethereal energy.  Matter is being transmuted into spiritual gold.  The whole scene is being transformed into a new and different element in a process of alchemy.  A breakthrough occurs in the freedom from oppression, blame, and heavy emotional thoughts, placed on you by others, in the realisation that they are not you.  


You become yourself as an individual in a spiritual realm.  A breakthrough is happening, but not in the way you might expect.  Immortality is not the gift of the physical, but the universal soul.
