New Universe - Art
In New Universe, a bright swirl of colors embodies the energy and motion of the birth of a universe. Immediately calling to mind the scientific theory of the Big Bang, this painting shows an expanding, ever-growing universe deriving from a central point. The lines of the painting spiral outward, a visual representation of the constantly expanding state of our universe. Just as everything in the universe originated from a single, explosive moment, the painting’s colors and lines generate from a central location from which the painting’s energy seems to emerge.
The colors of the universe embody the many elements and materials that were part of the universe’s explosive expansion. A wide range of cool and warm colors can be found in this piece, from a vibrant red shade to a cool, muted green. This all-encompassing color scheme represents the fact that everything in the universe originated in the Big Bang, from icy comets hurtling through space to blazing stars made of constantly burning gas. The full range of the universe came from this one instant, and New Universe captures the amazing phenomenon of the birth of a universe through evocative lines of movement and a striking mix of colors.
