Hidden Earth - Art
In Hidden Earth, abstract forms appear embedded in the surrounding green earth, a hidden treasure secreted away for someone to find one day. The earth itself is represented in the green background that dominates this piece. A color associated with vegetation and life, the green shade in this painting reflects the living earth, with its many secrets and mysteries.
Abstract figures lie embedded in this field of green, suggesting the secrets that the earth conceals just below its surface. Valuable minerals and natural resources often lie buried beneath the earth, making this a potential subject for the painting. Plant life also hides beneath the surface of the earth before emerging later on, making another hidden secret waiting to come forth from beneath the surface.
