"Zero Point"... I love this painting. I went through a faze of painting space, cosmic energy, solar events, the galaxies, comets, etc,... To say I was intrigued is an understatement. Understanding that we "humans", are a mere spec in an incomprehensible amount of space and time. It's incredibly humbling and good to keep in perspective. This painting was my attempt to express on canvas, what is also called quantum vacuum zero-point energy. In other aspects, Cosmic Energy. the cosmic microwave background radiation, the leftover radiation from the big bang.
I stumbled into painting some would say late in life, yet I had always searched for a positive way to express myself, however fleeting. Painting rapidly became an obsession as I soon realized that what I had been looking for wasn’t at all what I was expecting. This creative means of expression didn’t have to be beautiful and it certainly didn’t have to make sense. It was most often spontaneous, surreal, and subconscious. This style of painting as I now understand it has been vividly explored and technically termed as Abstract Expressionism. However, painting in the moment is whatever I need it to be, regardless of the term. I do not feel the need to follow any artistic rules or format as this would cross grain dramatically with what I am trying to accomplish with my art.
