Broken Sun - Art


In Broken Sun, the catastrophic end of our solar system is depicted in an unusual color scheme and freeform shapes. The death of our planet is shown in the exploding, bleeding image of a green orb destroyed by the red-hot energy surrounding it. This red background represents the expansion of the sun as it dies, turning into a red giant that engulfs the defenseless plants around it.

The green color of the circle that is the focus of this painting represents life on this planet, its life-force oozing out as if bleeding. The energy of the expanding sun will destroy the solar system, incinerating nearby planets and all life in this solar system. Broken Sun is a disturbing image of the frighteningly inevitable fate of our sun and solar system.
