Art Description

Painting: Acrylic on Aluminium and Canvas.

Large abstract painting in acrylic on canvas.

'The moment he was set at liberty, he looked up to the sky and down to the ground, and, stamping with his foot, in a contemplative mood, said, Eppur si muove, that is, still it moves, meaning the earth. Eppur si muove is a phrase attributed to the Italian mathematician, physicist and philosopher Galileo Galilei (1564–1642) in 1633 after being forced to recant his claims that the Earth moves around the Sun rather than the converse during the Galileo affair.

This is one of my action paintings. 'Action painting, sometimes called "gestural abstraction", is a style of painting in which paint is spontaneously dribbled, splashed or smeared onto the canvas, rather than being carefully applied.The resulting work often emphasizes the physical act of painting itself as an essential aspect of the finished work or concern of its artist.'

Signed on the back. Varnished with a thin layer to protect the artwork against UV and dust.
Edges are painted, no frame required. Ready to hang.
