Painting of the Month

Friday, May 1st, 2009

An interest and curiosity regarding cosmological phenomena has been the source of a constant theme in my work over the years.
This painting depicts the underside of a sphere seen from outer space.
A sort of a spacecraft hovers over the cosmic sphere and suggests a possible landing.
The composition including a smaller stellar body passing by with great speed allowed me to build up a heightened tension based on contrasting colours and energetic brush strokes
