About the Painting


The name of this work is “String Theory”.

To the quantum physicist, String Theory is the name given to the one, prevailing understanding of the composition of all matter and energy: that our entire physical world breaks down to the smallest bits of string that vibrate in different dimensions.

And this is the science’s ultimate quest: to understand the nature of the very, very small and how it relates to the totality of all things. This exquisite simplicity, yet to be discovered, they call “Singularity”. 

The artist’s greatest ambition mirrors the scientist’s. Creating exquisite complexitydescribes the artist’s journey. How interesting, that when an artist is capable of such complexity we all call that him or her “singular”.

All this perfectly describes Jimi Hendrix, who began so very small, and who, within one short burst of a lifetime, became the most singular instrumentalist the entire musical universe has ever known. 

His strings vibrating, vibrating, leading us all to a new understanding of the different dimensions and transcendent realities of sound.

DETAILS


 
 

It took over three years to finish this painting, sustained by Jimi’s music and the need to express my gratitude. 

He stands as I imagine him, lost in a note. Unconcerned, unaware that he has transcended even those things that rooted him to this physical, material world: his guitars.

He is surrounded by his Muses. And there, impassioned yet anchored by an earthly energy that rises around him; he plays the universe itself, with sounds impossible to make with just two human hands.

And what about the bees? There they fly, though scientists might have a hard time telling you how. They are the kind of bees capable of stinging with a pain that lingers too long, but are also capable of producing such sweetness. 

Like the Blues.

 

 
You have to give people something to dream on.
