"This piece is about confronting oneself with death and how this realization of perishment is anxiety-provoking, yet meaningful. Death is inevitable. This thought can be scary to many. In this work I invite the viewer to challenge their fears through confrontation - with nothingness. Yet through this confrontation, the viewer may realize that it is part of something greater.
After having created a lot of small circular pieces, I decided to work on two large paintings simultaneously. Both works revolved around thoughts on our place in the universe and how this reflection contributes to the meaning of life. The initial thoughts behind the piece came from several conversations about death and afterlife, as well as my own reflections about these topics.
To find inspiration for my art I often look into physical phenomena, photos of the universe, geology and geometry - things that cannot be seen with the naked eye but require some sort of instrument.
Before starting this painting, I was looking into spectrums, and decided to twist this phenomenon by doing a circular simulation of a spectrum." - Rebekka Borum
