Song of Our Star
A Point of Singularity - A Cosmic Dance of Energy and Motion
A painting by Resident Artist Arthur Woods
Early in my art career, I became interested and fascinated by particle physics and the minute structures of the microcosmos. I learned that all form is transitory and the entire cosmos is engaged in a perpetual dance of matter and energy. Applying this insight to my immediate environment I became aware that the entire material world that we call "reality" is both interdependent and interconnected. Based on this insight into the nature of reality, in the 1970's I began to develop a painting technique that used points and dabs of color as a visual metaphor for the components of the sub-atomic universe - the microcosmos. Into fields of color points I integrated calligraphic lines, symbols and geometric shapes to create a visual representation of the dynamic cosmos.
Song of Our Star was painted in 1989 and has always been one of my favorite paintings from this period.
