Stories and Theories
My upcoming painting exhibition looks at history of mankind’s quest of knowing universe. All of us have insider’s view of universe. To get outsider’s view of universe one has to guess, imagine and theorise. All over the past and in different civilisations; writers and philosophers have used their brains to make a meaningful picture of universe from available facts.
Some of these pictures were so powerful and beautiful that they became widely held beliefs. As the knowledge progressed pictures changed. The memory of old pictures remained and continued through myths with poetic stories accompanying them.
The pictorial journey I took involved exploring these myths and theories. As my involvement increased, I found that I am dealing with terms which are not commonly known. This written journey will explain these terms.
