The motif in 'Lines Nested' represents a black hole and its surrounding “event horizon”. The dark linear motif contrasts strongly against the muted, neutral background palette. A chartreuse circle is anchored in the centre of the motif.
About the series: There is much awe and beauty to be found in science. This series — 'macroscapes' — contains motifs inspired by the natural world of botanicals and unicellular organisms, while others are a visual re-imagining of theories like gravity and string theory.
Note: this painting, left unframed, intentionally reveals my artistic process. The random paint build-up and serendipitous drips that coat the sides of the deep edge canvas are meant to be seen.
