From the Arcadia series, Aura of the Universe is a symbolic representation of the idea of space, time, and the spontaneous images that appear sporadically on the canvas. The interweaving layers of this painting invite one to contemplate the invisible energy fields that radiate throughout existence. The cracks which appear as textures and tones are memories derived from the senses. Blossoming golden space, symbolic of wealth, power, and majesty. ‘There must be a kind of painting totally free of the dependence on the figure – or object – which, like music, illustrates nothing, tells no story, and launches no myth. Such painting would simply evoke the incommunicable kingdoms of the spirit, where dream becomes thought, where the line becomes existence.’ – Michel Seuphor. gold leaf on wood, size on request, 2023, Degard
