Spinning through Life is a developing series of works, continuing with the ideas of impermanence and the moment. 

When I am talking about spinning, I am talking about time, about lifespans, and about the time we experience, and about the impacts of our actions.

This is a series of portraiture spinning tops; I use a motif of person as top. Mostly the works are self portraits, based on my facial profile. 

In motion, the tops represent the journey of our brief existence and relationships as we spin through life, space and the cosmos.
