Abstract Painting Particle
Click to enlarge
The inspiration for these paintings comes from the components of atomic nuclei as investigated by the LHC (Large Hadron Collider, the world's largest and most powerful particle collider, built by the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) from 1998 to 2008). After accelerating particles up to near the speed of light they are made to collide in an explosion revealing different elemental particles of the atom. A major group of particles in atomic nuclei are called quarks. The six types of quarks are known as flavors : up, down, strange, charm, bottom, and top. I have used the idea of these collisions to express what the result might feel like. Colours are chosen and manipulated to give a harmonious and pleasing image and represent the quarks. The series includes other elemental particles such as Tauons and Fermions etc. The paintings are intended to be exciting close up as well as at a distance with new movements to be seen at every viewing. The title of each painting is the name of a quark or particle as felt appropriate.
