Artist's description:

I was inspired to create the mosaic of “Quintessence” after very thorough research on the fifth element as the medieval alchemist used to call it. It is actually the material that fills the region of the universe above the terrestrial sphere. The concept of ether was used in several theories to explain several natural phenomena, such as the traveling of light and gravity. In the late 19th century, physicists postulated that ether permeated all throughout space, providing a medium through which light could travel in a vacuum.
Despite the early modern ether models being superseded by general relativity, occasionally some physicists have attempted to reintroduce the concept of ether in an attempt to address perceived deficiencies in current physical models. One proposed model of dark energy has been named "quintessence" by its proponents, in honor of the classical element. It has also been called a fifth fundamental force.
I have been inspired by all of that to create a mosaic of marble, natural stone, granite, Mosaic Dona Murano and gold.

Materials used:

Different kind of stones, Dona Murano glas /smalti and smalti filati/, canvas

Quintessence (2017)
