Fertilization - Art
Fertilization is an intriguing, freeform painting that captures the essence of fertilization and the creation of life. The abstract figure that is the focus of this painting is portrayed in a drab gray shade, as though it is a formless type of matter that can be molded into any type of creation. This shapeless, characteristic- free substance reflects the potential of this form, particularly its potential to grow into an as yet undetermined life form.
The shape of the figure is also important to note. Two segments of gray material appear to be coming into “dock” into two corresponding spaces on the larger figure in this piece. These two segments complete the figure, finalizing the fertilization process and creating a whole being that can now grow into a living organism. This completion, the coming together of the male and female components, or reproductive cells, is the central concern of Fertilization, an interesting, colorful painting that reflects the nature of the fertilization process in living things.
