Almost all of the theories before Copernicus had earth at the centre of universe. Copernicus brought Sun at the centre. The heliocentric model of Copernicus did not last long as the observational power increased rapidly. It was first realised that the sun is part of gigantic galaxy
and is not at the centre of it. Further to this there was an added knowledge that our galaxy too was not at the centre of universe and there are many more such galaxies. Thanks to Hubble’s observations, shape of universe was like 4th dimensional spheroid. Mathematically every point on spheroid is at the centre. So if earth was on spheroid it still can be called as at centre.
All these theories and myths gave me lot to think and explore. These thoughts led me to imagine things and shapes for my paintings.
