Time into Eternity
This piece explores what it looks like for time to reach fullness and then transition into eternity. How will those two segments relate to each other?
Here the fullness of time is represented by a circle. It is contained with specific parameters and volume. Inside the circle is an organic design that has grown and filled the space. Time has been filled full to the brim and the growing has reached its conclusion, or has it?
On one hand, the design as we know it has stopped. The dark tones are clearly contained within the circle. The end. On the other hand, we see a similar continuation of the same design spreading out from the circle. It bares a definite resemblance to the design inside, and yet the colors are of a different nature. Also, the design is no longer contained. It spreads out into the space indicating that it will continue to grow, unbound by time.
“Time into Eternity” hints at what is to come when we transition into eternity. What we have grown, or allowed to grow will carry over, in some way into forever. What we do, what we submit to or resist, what we continue or cease, matters.
When we cross the boundary, will we be prepared for what comes next?
This is a mixed media piece which includes gallery wrapped canvas (12x12x1.5"), oil paint, metallic oil paint, cold-pressed watercolor paper, graphite, gel medium, and varnish. This style of collage painting helps express the layers, textures and varying elements that come together to tell the story with more depth and interest than paint and canvas alone.
The painting comes unframed unless you purchase a framing option but is painted on all sides if you choose to display it unframed.
Paintings usually ship within 1-2 weeks unframed, 2-3 if you choose the framing option. Shipping costs are included (approx. $30 value) and additional shipping costs of the frame are wrapped into that price.
About this collection:
The Fullness of Time Collection explores what it means to live within the bounds of time. What is the purpose of time? What are we filling our time with? What is time moving towards? When we better understand these concepts we are able to move through life in agreement with time. We start to understand right moments, proper perspective, and future fulfillment. This collection highlights different aspects of the fullness of time.
