In a vertical line, 7 symetrical circles are drawn, each overlapping the next one at the halfway center point, to reveal what we see before. This is only the first painting with only certain points highlighted by the contrasting black and white blocks. There are literally hundreds of combinations that can form, and this is only the beginning of the series of exploration of symbols for A. Mor.
We are immediately drawn to pick out the shapes we commonly recognize as well as be forced to look harder and see the ones we don’t quite recognize so easily, but somehow feel as if we do. That is because each and every symbol, shape, and form within this painting, is used at some point in either nature, religion, business, fashion, and society. From the formation of a snowflake to the precision of the cleavage in crystals, we are these symbols present in such a simple yet complex geometric formula? What could possibly be staring right back at us- a lost key, a secret code, or just another simple perversion of the imagination in an altered state and from another dimension?
This painting represents the beginning of a journey into everyday commonness with an unknown certainty, parallel to life’s own journey, much like a newborn walks the same path others have mastered, and breaths the same air others already have filtered.
The painting has beautiful tones of shading and measures 4′ in height by 2′ across and is done on an oil-based background of solid Buddhist orange with acrylic used as the design, varnished and sealed in a semi-gloss but mostly satin finish.
