Speaking to the Universe
We are impossibly small in a universe that moves so slowly and on such a grand scale. To imagine ourselves as the center of the universe is easy, natural even, and the idea that a supermassive black hole billions of light years away might be pulling on the world, on our own bones, is nearly incomprehensible. The galaxies and stars seem like a backdrop to our lives, if that. But they are everything. We are a part of it, they a part of us. They will never hear our voice, and although the universe may speak to us, the sound is too low to hear. We speak back and forth for eternity, hearing nothing, and seeing so very little.
Original painting by Isla Jiang 'Speaking to the Universe’ 2021
12x16" canvas - unframed
Part of the Celestial Collection, this piece is an expression of a moment in time and the desire to hold onto each passing moment. It shows the need to be present and feel every moment of joy and peace as we rest in the here and now without worry for the past or the future. Layers of transparent pigment reveal the depth of the deep blue color in calming, free strokes across the canvas.
