Abstract Acrylic painting, 18 x 24 inch original one of a kind painting, varnished acrylic on 1.5 inch deep cradled birch wood panel. The panel was sealed using Golden’s GAC 100, an archival sealer and barrier layer. The painting was created in layers, alternating free form abstract expressionist ideas and techniques with tape masked hard edge techniques. Written in Particles and Fields is a study in yellow tonalities, with objects and patterns at various length-scales suggesting order at different length scales, granularity and self-similarity.
Many of the fine painted details are evocative of the symbols used for sinusoidal electromagnetic waves and for compressive waves. other fine details are meant to evoke particle probability waves. In some areas the details are more explicitly quantum mechanical, where the standing waves for atomic orbitals and molecular orbitals have been sketched in carefully.
Text is used in the painting, but the text of particles and waves is of course equations and operators. The Schrodinger equation features prominently, but a number of key Quantum operators are also in there along with the DeBroglie particle wave equation and the Uncertainty.
