38 x 49 in. | acrylic on canvas | 2016


Over 250 individually painted shapes depicting a certain aspect of the universe, how pressures and densities can create some pretty stunning things. Stars. Diamonds. Steel. Oil. Silicon.

This is an original composition that required careful measurements and skillful handling of tools and pigments to achieve the desired effect of colours constrained to crisp straight lines. The divisions between the sections are straight and quite visible. They often catch the light, and when they do, highlight the sections surrounding it.

Palette consists of varying hues of prussian blue, cerulean blue, manganese blue, ultramarine blue, turquoise deep, and white.
