Side Effect

In 2017 I started to work on series of content-wise and stylistically more abstract images. I always wondered if we could capture forces beyond our understanding. How about the beginning of the world? What does the inside of a black hole look like? Dark matter? How to imagine the Earth 4 billion years after the expansion of the Sun? Would they capture our dreams? How could the meaning of life be painted?

The side effect of hidden secret forces may be something new, not yet realized. I try to capture this reality at the stage of the abstract possibility of its concretization in a painted image.
