Artist's description:

This painting was created in response to all the things we do not know about the sky. It is a vast arena for our imagination. By using the 23k gold, I'm suggesting that the space of the sky is also sacred. I'm inspired by numerical symbolism - here there are 3 tondos grouped together, hinting at the 3 places we are embedded in: the mind, the spirit, and the physical.
I've been using precious metals in my work for over 10 years. The gold here creates a space that is meta-physical. It calls to mind the mysteries of matter. The piece was created on hand-marbleized Japanese paper that I purchased on a trip to Japan. I like the patterning on the paper - especially the way it "speaks" to the subtle patterning in the oil paint washes within the orbs.
