Myths of Creation - CE190205.1201

Acrylic, powder pigment, resin, plaster, mixed media, 2019, 48 x 48 x 2.5 inches.

"Each work in the Myths of Creation series is a record of a unique event, an instant of time, forever frozen. The series is inspired by images from NASA's Hubble Telescope of cosmic events like supernovae: what we see are records of ancient events that occurred eons ago but still have impact and immediacy. I wanted to capture that feeling: each work is made by exploding various materials onto a prepared board. The resulting explosion becomes the work-each piece is a record of the very instant of its creation. The titles reflect this as they bare the date and time of the event. The works are fixed in cast resin, which adds a stunning visual dimension, and enhances the sense of these works as frozen moments of time, records of specific, cataclysmic events."
