Future - Art
An enigmatic piece with simple shapes and a monochromatic color scheme, Future is an examination of the nature of time and its passage. A wispy gray orb dominates the painting. This gray orb is a representation of the sun, its airy composition a reflection of the gaseous makeup of the sun and all other stars in our universe. The sun is bordered on the top and the bottom by other abstract shapes.
The dark shape along the bottom of the gray sun is a thick black line with graceful curves. This dark swath of blackness represents the night that comes as the sun disappears from the horizon. On the other side, a light, domed figure represents the day, which comes with the rising of the sun in the morning. The sun’s role in the passage of time, from past to present to future, is skillfully examined in Future, which is becomes examination of the qualities inherent to the passage of time.
