Evolution is a painting inspired by the event of the Big Bang.
This painting features the event of the Big Bang, followed by Nucleosynthesis, and the eventual cooling and development of complex bodies within the universe (stars, planets, galaxies, intelligent life, etc).
Intelligent life “maps” spring from a galaxy and fixes on the far reaches of its arms. These “Maps” appear as Biomarkers with distinct sulci and gyri circuits. Remnants of past civilizations can be seen as incomplete “maps” throughout the piece.
The honeycomb figure (off-center, right) represents the James Webb Space Telescope and the new age of space exploration.
Big Bang!– Universe cooled.
Electrons waltzing Protons
Bore Hydrogen, Helium & trace lithium.
Photons stretched — the Stars
Made the rest.
This painting is a reminder that exploration is key to discovery, and survival.
