Materia: Earth by seaspell Materia: Earth by seaspell
Mixed Media (Acrylics, Pastel, Pencils and Graphite on paperboard)
14 x 18
2010

I am the Universe and the Universe is Me.
We're sound, stars, atoms
Descending, vibrating, in an eternal dance
Chanting, flowing, in circles and spirals of light
From the ether to my veins and nerves and bones
My vessel of light
Screaming I am Immortal.


"Materia" (Latin word for matter) is a series of four paintings that deal with the notion of chemical structure of the human body and its relation with the circular forms of the sacred geometry (mandalas), while attempting to transmit a sense of energetic nurturing through colors and symbolic images related to each one of the four elements - Fire, Earth, Air, and Water. The base for the mandala drawing is the main structure of a molecule of ferritin, a protein that exists in almost all living organisms and that is responsible for the storage and release of iron, an essential element for life.

I like the ripples coming off of the atoms, and your symbolism in general. :)
