Circle vs. Square
In this series, circles and spheres symbolize the planet, and squares and cubes symbolize human nature. There are upper and bottom spaces. When a circle opens up, so does the galaxy, and inside is another circle – this symbolizes the planet and from it, cubes fall out from opposite directions, both gravitating to the center of the painting – free cosmos. Once the opposite cubes meet, they collapse into small pieces, and the middle one grows to birth a new platform – new space where the same process will repeat. The Rhombus sides naturally fall away. When I first created these paintings, they only had three colors: black, white, and red, though over the years, I added new ones. While I was working on this series, I didn’t know of El Lisicki, and was introduced to him later on as some people thought he was the inspiration of these pieces, however, it wasn’t at all. My concept of the series came from the idea that my paintings have different meanings, and that they represent cosmological processes in geometrical forms.
