Erebus, also called Skotos, personified the Greek god of darkness and shadows; according to tradition, the density of its dark fog could reach any corner and even underground hiding places, and could clothe it to the edges of the world. Thinking about this myth, I made an abstract interpretation of this god that, like a circular hole, moves to absorb light.
I have called this pictorial process "Symmetrical Abstraction" to create patterns of compositions of colors, forms, and in general any visual element that has as starting point what in mathematics is known as bilateral flat symmetry, that is, folding a middle section of a plane or canvas over another middle section of the same plane or canvas, in such a way that upon contacting the surfaces of both sections with the painting still wet in the middle, the copying of all the forms of one section on the other will take place; both sides or sections thus obtain similar shapes in proportion of paint and shapes.
