LHC # 5
acrylic, pencil on mylar
42 X 84 inches

These pieces are part of the artist’s ongoing “Large Hadron Collider” series, first exhibited at the Vernon Gallery in Prague. Inspired by the huge chambers and tunnels at the scientific facility that gives the series its name, the space of the paintings is a floating, subterranean one. Brushstrokes, splatters and random events are delineated in curving trajectories, projected on two layers (front and back) of translucent mylar.
