This is a homage to the German Romantic landscape painter Caspar David Friedrich (born: 05/09/1774 Greifswald, died: 07/05/1840 Dresden).
In my work, an imaginary world expressed by the silhouette of mountain in moonlight, suggests a spiritual dimension.
Ideas of lives lived in this manifestation or any other manifestation, suggested by imaginary land/skyscape in two dimensional form.

In biblical terms, it is written that the Sun, Moon and Stars were created on this day. Together with its companion, ‘Day Four’, this work makes use of abstract marks and gestures to suggest a cosmology where the history and the fate of the universe come together. Simplistically, it is a site where the Big Bang theory and Judeo/Christian beliefs co exist in a visually explosive cacophony. This work attempts to bring together modern observational astronomy and particle physics, with mythological, religious and esoteric ideas.
Swirling drips and marks sweeping across the work allude to the fourth day of Creation. Irrespective of ones spiritual beliefs, one can but wonder at the magnificence of Nature. However we consider Creation, no words can approximate the force and power that made it happen. It is truly awesome.
