Over 250 individually painted shapes depicting a certain aspect of the universe, how pressures and densities can create some pretty stunning things. Stars. Diamonds. Steel. Oil. Silicon.
This is an original composition that required careful measurements and skillful handling of tools and pigments to achieve the desired effect of colours constrained to crisp straight lines. The divisions between the sections are straight and quite visible. They often catch the light, and when they do, highlight the sections surrounding it.
Palette consists of varying hues of prussian blue, cerulean blue, manganese blue, ultramarine blue, turquoise deep, and white. Hues are rarely repeated.
Quality materials are used to ensure longevity: This painting should last for many decades if properly maintained.

"Painting is a way of depiction, just as photographs are, but they differ in one crucial aspect: a camera freezes time and space into a fixed perspective, whereas the human optic system is constantly registering change. A camera with one eye does not see like two eyes and a brain. We see everything in focus, but we don't see it all at once; that's the point. We take time. Yet, if you ask the average person which looks more real, they would say the photograph, and I'm convinced it can't be true.
Cubism was an unfortunate name and it's a different way of looking and it's about reality and perception. In the art world, Cubism has been greatly misinterpreted as being about abstraction, which it's not. It's about perceiving the physical. Cubism is about how we see what we see.
This is the fundamental idea which drew me to start making paintings on canvas. Paintings, I believe, are able to represent reality close to how we perceive it, which is seeing with movement (space) and with memory (time)."
