Universe, oil on canvas, 90 x 100 cm, 2016
We live in a Universe that dances with vibrations at every scale.
6,328 painted dashes signify this multitude of oscillations: The lowest dark bar represents the great pressure waves of matter and light at the beginning of time with a cycle of around one million years and the faint dashed line at the top, the beating electric and magnetic fields of the light made when two protons collide in the Sun. Between, are the cycles of the Sun, our earth years, days and nights, the human heart and the sound of our voices.
Travelling upwards from the single dark line, each horizon represents a doubling of frequency. The fastest rhythms are ten thousand million million million million million times quicker than the slowest.

All bodies shine, releasing visible and invisible light in myriad droplets of various energies. This is as true of you and your coffee cup as it of the Sun. The distribution of those energies – the number of vigorous droplets and the number of languorous ones - depends only on the temperature and is represented here by circles of various sizes.
