For Arvon this series of paintings represents a moment in time when the outcome of an event is uncertain. The observer does not know what will happen or whether she or he will be involved in an event that may turn out to be good or bad.
 In 2012 his preoccupation was with trying to reconcile picture construction with emotional events. These events were very simple everyday occurrences such as what might happen when a woman awakes, from the moment she opens her eyes to the moment of consciousness.
More recently he has become particularly interested in the way that history and structures are created out of layers where the present may hide or alternatively partially reveal the past. While not suggesting this is archeology there is a similarity in the way he uses layers that show through other layers both in the form of transparent colours or in the form of actual layers of paper or acetate.
