My hope is for the folios presented here to be a trail of psychic processes, unfolding and developing – in a potentially cyclic, hermeneutic fashion, following the example of illuminated, symbolic medieval alchemical texts (such as the Mutus Liber and the Twelve Keys of Basil Valentine). Although there are start and end points to a folio, other developments also occur. The folios hark back to a process work from 1995: Dye Works – The Washing Of Saturn.
