Recently finished commission for Francisco. ‘Phi’ measuring 374mm X 230mm. Started in September 2016 and finished October 27 2016.
The whole image is a golden rectangle. The main rectangle in the middle is also golden as are the two connecting rectangles at 12 o’clock and 6 oclock. I arranged the Fibonacci spiral the way it is as to me it always resembles a feminine face looking back at the viewer. If you notice the little teeth/cogs on the spiral as it goes into the centre, this also adds to the feminine energy giving it the effect of eyelashes.
The spiral actually goes into the centre of the Orion nebula in the space I have created which is where our sun was born. There is a real but almost invisible spiral of gas that comes from this region called ‘barnards loop’ which spirals out to the stars that were created in this region of space.
The background to the region of space within the centre rectangle (the dots and dashes) could on one level represent the digital nature behind reality or all the information within it.
I have 24 suns/seeds of life, all uniquely decorated, around the border to represent on one level the cycle of a day.(24hrs). On another level the ancient yuga cycle of higher and lower ages every 24,000 years. The top and bottom golden rectangles are decorated with the Sun/PHI symbols. The Yuga cycle is also incorporated into the shading of the lower Sun. I left the upper sun shaded as it is to represent a golden age. The corner stones of the picture are megalithic blocks making up the Fibonacci progressions.
