Question for the artist?

Artist's description:

Roots, lianas and snakes connect and embrace each other, staging their struggle for life within a medusa-like throng. Here, Charles Darwin, as well as Edgar Allan Poe and perhaps also HP Lovecraft seem to have been patrons. Depictions of evolutionary possibilities are brought into existence, atomic and cosmic energies bring forth life with a resulting diversity of primeval beings and more complex species appearing around a vortex spiral. Entities drawn in from alternate dimensions, cross-converging otherwise separated worlds.
