Return to Thoughts and Ideas About Art

In “The Ever-Present Origin”, Jean Gebser addresses the idea that our origin is always here always present. In the Big Bang Theory there is an effort to explain what happened at the very beginning of our universe. Prior to the moment of the Big Bang there was nothing and that after that moment there was something: our universe. That everything that has ever existed and still exists today is related to that moment. That is our origin and the origin of everything.  In painting of my self-portrait I tried to show this idea. I began to look at light and halos in paintings and auras in that pretext.  Not only are we all enlightened from the first light but we are also related to everything.
