Historipre - Art
Historipre is a dark piece that depicts an amorphous, abstract shape in a monochromatic color scheme. The figure presented in this piece is wispy and cloud-like, as though one’s fingers might slip easily through its substance. Hazy circles and lines combine to form a beautiful and striking abstract image. The blurred edges of the lines and shapes in this piece give the impression of dissipation, of something fading away slowly over time.
The deterioration of the objects in this painting suggests the passage of time. Time moves slowly over everything in the universe, slowly changing and breaking down objects by a number of physical processes. This painting reveals the way that history unfolds, constantly bringing about the destruction of old buildings, artifacts, and other objects by a slow and persistent deterioration. Historipre examines this slow deterioration and its effects on the world.
