New painting. Acrylic on cotton, 40*60*4cm. November 2014.
This serie of 5 abstract paintings and art objects, are the result of my interest for the laws of nature and their deeper spiritual meaning.
Movement, gravity and the three primary colors are the base.
There are also hidden mindfulness messages to be found by looking inside the paintings Look and Mess. These are inspired by buddhist texts and the common ‘follow your heart’.
Look. Acrylic and mirror paper on 3 D canvas 30*30cm, 2014.
Looking for peace? Look inside your heart.
Mess. Acrylic and mirror paper on 3D canvas 30*30cm, 2014.
Whatever mess you will find yourself in, take a look inside and you will find your Innerlight.

You are the Universe. 2014.
In my post https://settiaramautarsing.com/2014/05/18/lets-begin/ I let you know that I started to experiment some of my new ideas. I was inspired by ‘Stephen Hawking’s The story of the Universe’ and this very informative fun to watch animation of Kurzgesagt, Are you alone: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PKMQzkIiB0Y
Movement, gravity and colors are the pillars of my project and very little intervention of the artist (me) as possible during the painting proces. Just allowing it happen. Whilst turning the canvas around with one hand I dropped the paint with the other hand. So far 5 acrylic paintings/worlds developed in this way. From these painting I made these 3D objects which let the spectator experience, feel connected and getting aware of Life.
You can see here an impression of the process of some of the paintings.
How it at all began
Getting into the flow
This art object represents Life and all its contradictions; emptiness – fullness, darkness-brightness movement – stillness. Birth(the lower white thread beneath the painting. Human Life in this world (the painting). Death (the upper white thread) and Life itself (the Frame). The object is meant to hang freely to emphasise the constant movement.
The details of this work can be found in the ‘detail gallery’ below. As you can see are more loose white threads, all representing the most important social factors in our life. Another detail which is easy to spot, is the state of the painting itself. While the paper was still wet with paint, I fold and ‘mold’ it, to give it that decayed look. The paper with a structure like linen was just perfect for it.
