My Universe - Art
My Universe is a monochromatic, abstract piece with graceful lines that reflect a natural beauty found in the structure of the universe’s very existence. In this painting, the universe is depicted by elegant arcs and graceful curves that seem to waft slowly across the painting. This movement seems to be outward, toward the painting’s edges, as if the shape of the universe shown is constantly expanding. This expansion is also a feature of the actual nature of the universe. Since the Big Bang, the universe has been expanding at a constant rate, a scientific reality explored in this piece.
Yet the painting does not treat the subject with a cold, scientific perspective. The universe is not drawn in an exact, clinical way, but rather as an expansion of expanding matter and energy, a graceful cloud that wafts across time and space, its slow movement imperceptible to the sentient beings living within this universe. This painting is evocative and beautiful, and the universe that it its subject is beautiful and emotionally affecting, its elegant lines bringing to mind the natural beauty and wonder of the universe and its vastness. My Universe manages to capture the infinite reality of the universe in a few simple, refined lines.
