Artist's Description

The Creation of Colour

Pen and pencil on paper

Original size: 16×16 inches

60 working hours

Much of the inspiration for this piece came from the Biblical account of creation (Genesis 1), which describes the order of creation. This piece is based on 4 evolutionary stages of creation, which is graphically visual in the form of the 4 circles. Each circle encompasses a different stage of creation:

(“And the land was chaos…” – Genesis 1, 2) Grey – chaos, lack of differentiation between light and dark
(“And God divided between Light and Darkness” – Genesis 1, 4) Mixture of black and white particles -separation between light and dark on a conceptual level.
(“ And God called the Light; Day, and the Darkness He called Night” – Genesis 1’ 5) Black section and white section – separation of light and dark into two separate entities – night and day
(“In the image of God he created him, male and female he created them” – Genesis 1, 27) Transformation from cosmic forces of light and dark into worldly opposing forces – red and blue.
Suspended over the whole piece is a line that joins the opposing forces at every stage. This line represents the attraction between opposites which is present at all levels of existence.

Between the boundaries of the outer circles, a repetition of the Hebrew phrase ‘Ein Ani’ (“There is no “I”). In the context of this drawing this can be understood as the nullification of the ego, or separate identity of each separate force when each half is dedicated to the completion of the other
