Painting in the 5th Dimension vol. II
In math, the 5th dimension is an abstraction used to develop the beginings of the unified field theory, the Kaluza - Klein theory. In new age consciousness, this higher 5th dimension is a state of being that is characterized by love, joy, peace, gratitude, compassion, and abundance. Even tho they exist in abstract relation to each other, both aim for understanding the experience of reality, the universe, and the self.
Whether or not the 5th dimension exists is for debate in one form or another, nevertheless, the observer is invited to dream and delight in color. While the P5D process unveils abstract forces and energy hidden from the everyday gaze, the paintings put forward a map of visual models for a multi-dimensional universe as suggested by the M theory, formulated by Edward Witten, who states that the M should stand for “magic”, “mystery”, or “membrane” according to taste.
This new collection is all three. "Magic", becasue it reveals the vibrations of life. "Mysterious" in texture. The artist uses acrylic skins to lift a thin sheet of paint crystals, which reveals a fractal under layer uncanny in surface and illusion. The outer form of some pieces feels like a slice of the universal "membrane". The organic shapes and vibrant hues invigorate the abstract lexicon of imagination. P5D stimulates the conditioned viewer and investigates new sensations of beauty. Each abstraction is liberation from the visual algorithm confining the mind’s eye. By closely exploring each work we can glance into a world that somehow reflects our own. Even if we can't see it, yet.
