About The Depths Painting

Depths

Depths, 2017.

Golden acrylics and mixed-media on canvas.

40 x 30 cm.

This painting is inspired by the Taoist way of explaining how our universe was created. In the beginning of time the forces hanging in an empty great void of space and time were static. When they came together they created movement. When the opposing forces of Yin (darkness) and Yang (light) interact with each other movement is created and change can take place. From this eternal dance of energies arose the stars, moons, planets and eventually life.

This painting shows the intertwining layers of energies, ranging from  primitive streams of consciousness to it’s more sophisticated forms.

 

“The moon does not fight. It attacks no one. It does not worry. It does not try to crush others. It keeps to its course, but by its very nature, it gently influences. What other body could pull an entire ocean from shore to shore? The moon is faithful to its nature and its power is never diminished.”

– Ming-Dao Deng
