My muse introduced me to the M-Theory of quantum physics. I am always amused by things that I cannot quite comprehend. That theory posits there are 11 dimensions, and that time is composed of crystals formed by three dimensional equilateral triangles, the smallest length of which (the Planck length) is so small – – – well, the idea confounds me. But, that’s why we have a crystal, front and center here in this piece. And yes, while I rarely make statements about any of my paintings, I will say, this crystal is meant to represent time. Everything else is up to you!
Sometimes I feel like, well, in the case of me and my art-making, that painting is a little like constructing a sentence. The piece needs a subject…without a subject, well, you don’t really have anything…. That’s because, from my perspective, I work with a subject in mind….but, I’m painting along and suddenly I’ve come to realize that I do not know what the subject is here….it’s just too ambiguous I think. And, there. I’ve said nothing as well.
Yes, it’s complete and I must say that I’ve come to the conclusion that the only part of this painting that the viewer looks at – at least from the comments on Facebook (mostly male)- is this guy’s dick and its size. Well, that was blunt, wasn’t it? It prompted me to rework his scrotum, which, of course, made me more than a little self-conscious – where previously I had no reservations. Geeze. It is done – but now I think his head is too big! ha!
blah, blah, blah. I was sketching and my son called to tell me that some physicists had proved that time has its own matter, you know, there are solids and gases and time has crystals. It makes my head hurt. Time crystals. Then I started painting this. It is a work in progress from the series 404 Page Not Found.
