THE ELECTRIC UNIVERSE painting on repurposed surfboard.
Just got word that this art piece sold for over $12,000 at auction! Proceeds benefit Pipeline to a Cure.
The Electric Universe painting was inspired by my studies of the theory that everything in the #Universe
is electric and connected. The hourglass shape in the center is an image that has been found on ancient rocks all over the world. It looks like a man, but it actually is a torus, viewed from the side. This is something that #ancient
people saw in our sky and were compelled to draw into stone.
This surfboard is one of a six #surfboard
series called Sacred Surfboards. The series was the result of collectors Jeff Eilers and Erwin Spitz, who wanted to breathe new life into worn out, beyond-repair surfboards from the 60's and 70's and transform them into up-cycled pieces of art.
Jeff and Erwin have a process where they skin the #fiberglass
from old boards and gently clean up the original shape. It is an extreme amount of work to re-purpose them.
For the artwork for this series, I utilized skills that were mastered in my early days using airbrush and simple cutout paper stencils.
The style was inspired by the Rainbow boards of the seventies. I incorporated my passion for physics into the art motif.
This surfboard is a beautiful example of craftsmanship from a team of people and art that will live on.
