MANKIND IN UNIVERSE
REALIZATION OF OUR INSIGNIFICANCE IN THE UNIVERSE
We don’t have eyes in the top of our heads to maintain our sense of relative proportion. One can then see in this series of paintings the vastness of space, the distance in that journey of escape from this world and from one’s sense of one’s own self-importance. This is a vast space without signposts or footprints between orders of both reality and significance. There are indications in the nebulae on that far horizon that the individual pilgrim sights through a telescope. In a vessel open to the elements which is floating out with no visible means of support through the immensity of space. It is the journey of the alone to the alone undertaken by the seeker.
