If appearance and essence were the same things, there would be no need for art/science.
Here I’ve been exploring the world of quantum physics, astrophysics and metaphysics. The paintings such as “Fresh Cut”, “Broken Fetus”, “Reflected Reality” and “Frozen thoughts” are all virtual utopian places.
I start them as a digital sketch which later on is turned into a painting. Influenced by the ideas of Niels Bohr, Einstein, Michio Kaku, Tyson, etc and experiments/theories such as: “double-slit experiment”, “Casimir effect”, “theory of relativity”, “string theory” and turning the Euclidian geometry into a painting as a reflection of a 3D world that could only be experienced in a 4D manner is my main approach.
Discussing some of the most brilliant ideas (that some yet don’t have an explanation) while expressing my own understanding through the medium of painting.
