‘Evolution as Art‘ is a creation I made after reflecting on my life over the last few years. As my life has had such an episodic structure, from job to job, country to country, I find it easy to measure my growth during these time periods. Evolution as art is my personal slant on my life in this way.
The theme of my painting is Evolving through the Episodic Nature of Life. This is evolution as art.
In every episode of our lives or in every new environment we find ourselves in, we evolve, we adapt, we change and we adopt new behaviours. I want to show the contrasts of the subject in each of these backdrops of life.
The bright neon green circles are cells representing a human life form in unconnected phases. Each of these cells have adapted to their environment to create a unique overall design. None of these stages are ‘better’ than any other, they are all perfect in their own right. As humans we have this incredible skill to adapt, it’s truly fascinating to see and be a part of.
I wanted my idea to convey that human life form can be made and reshaped: and so I made the cells the secondary colour “green”. The shades of green can be seen modifying within the cell pattern.
Around each set of cells there is a gold outline, this is our spiritual self encasing our physical bodies. The stages are divided by large harsh red lines; I wanted the bold primary colours to represent the unmovable stages we have in life. This could be a new location, a new age bracket or a turn in life.
The background of each section is a varied gradient of black and grey, I wanted them to be subtle, distinctive and different to one another, as the cells transform and adapt to the surrounding environments.
The blue part which connects all the cells through the environments, stages, and backgrounds is that of the lifeline. The DNA is the part which reminds us that even as we change, develop, evolve and adapt, the cells are all linked to the essence of life.
Check out all my spiritual and affirmation art at my FAA store, where I sell prints and originals like this.
It’s such a beautiful thing to be able to express ourselves, I especially love the challenge to create something that’s so personal to me, on subjects that I find fascinating. Please feel free to comment and show any art you have done on a similar subject, I’d love to see it.
