Theme of the painting – Multidimensionality of Maya as a Sphere
The painting was born during the walk by the Adriatic, and the vision of the sphere came to mind like a reflection of the planet we live in, but also the fact that each element that surrounds us all the way down to microscopic world may in fact be defined as a sphere. The molecular world for instance is one of the most extreme examples. Considering that we live in a linear world, or at least the society conditions us to understand it as such, full of mostly dual choices and actions, I started reading the philosophy of Peter Sloterdijk and was very interested in the proposition of understanding this world in a deeper multidimensional sense, because that is what it’s physical representation communicates. The planet lives in coordination with all the elements that comprise it, and no matter how much human civilization may found itself distanced and in some cases despising the natural world, and some unfavourable elements, resulting in bad economy, I believe, much like Peter Sloterdijk outlines that we as a civilization are mature enough to be able to look at the world as a whole, rather than just taking a human centred approach, which seemed to be the case in the industrial era and many other eras before that.
Charlie: One can never equate what you perceive with what it really is. Your biological body is prone to hypnotize and predetermine your actions! There is an element called genetic wisdom and survival/improvement of the species which your mind sometimes faces in the moment of conflicting thoughts. Earling: I read somewhere among the books and sayings on Earth that: “The test of a first-rate intelligence is the ability to hold two opposed ideas in mind at the same time and still retain the ability to function.” F. Scott Fitzgerald Maybe the moment will soon come when the opposition will not be misused but will contribute towards the understanding of the whole which seems far more complex and beyond good and evil?
