Artist's Description

Acrylic on canvas, original is 16 × 20 inches. Created by washing stripes of dilute paint over the canvas, followed by a series of pours and finally extruded relief.

The heterotroph hypothesis suggests that the first life forms to emerge from the primordial soup did not make their own nutrients through photosynthesis. These early heterotrophs consumed the nutrient matter that already existed in the biochemical soup from which they arose. Over time as the soup became thin and watery, photosynthesizing autotrophs began to appear and gain a foothold. The original painting is fairly complex, constructed using a series of transparent overlapping layers and 3-d relief from extruded media.
