Artist's Description

“Hydrogen” displays the theme of creation and also the unifying and condensing polarities that reveal the forces shaping patterns of reality.

Hydrogen is an element abundantly present in nebulas and stars. It is the element of creation. Hydrogen, having one neutron one proton and one electron, is a perfect example of simplistic balance and polarity.

Hydrogen is written on the diagram as well as hydrogen’s atomic mass to give the appearance of the periodic table. The pyramids in Giza, Egypt are positioned relative to the Nile river in the same way the constellation Orion is positioned with the Milky Way and so it is in “Hydrogen”.

The figure on the lower left of the canvas is me meditating in the Milky Way. The figure on the lower right side of the canvas is a friend, Venessa. Feeling strongly inspired to paint one night until 7 am, I painted (without much thought) a baby in the upright figure of Venessa. Two weeks later she told me that she was pregnant. I am in awe of the power of artistic expression and what it can manifest.

Proportionately correct angles and distances between the stars of the Orion constellations are painted on the canvas. The belt is above and to the left of the male figure. The right knee of the figure (me) is a star. Another star is a point on the Giza pyramid diagram. The creamy yellow stream flowing behind the male figure is a representation of the milky way. The three pyramids in Giza, Eqypt are created in a way that mimics the shape of the belt of the Orion constellation. The diagram in the upper left of the painting shows the placement of the pyramids. The diagram is then expanded and rotated 90° twice.

In the upper right corner is a malachite tree. I am really attracted to this particular mineral. Although it may not have a know correlation to the rest of the painting, I felt an impulse to paint it, and happily acted upon that impulse.
