The full title is, The Black Madonna of Quantum Physics with String Poem. This work is meant to function as a meditation tool and as a looking glass into the viewers own SUBSTANCE. . . the substance that fills the universe and fuels it, knows it, and continues to create it. I have incorporated symbols for the atom, the sacred balance in alchemy or the Star of David, and the Fibonacci Codeor the cubes. I became interested in the Black Madonna in 1987 when I made a pilgrimage to Montserrat, outside of Barcelona. I sensed such power on this mountain. I found a silence within me that filled the roar of every ocean. This painting is executed on two stretched canvases. One is 36 inches by 36 inches and the other is 6 inches by 36 inches wide. This will be my final Black Madonna related to String Theory. MEDIA includes Acrylic, enamel, gesso, pulverized micamother of pearl on two heavy duty wood stretched canvases.
