SMALL UNIVERSES

A series of paintings/constructions. Identical in size, format, frame, and mat. The goal is that each should contain the maximum amount of creativity, energy and beauty. I.e., each is a universe.

Elan Vital

Small Universes, a work in progress, grew out of a convergence--the digital painting, the extreme drawings, and a range of techniques and approaches I’ve been exploring for years. The first rule  is “no rules” and my big hope is to surprise myself. There are now about 35 finished Universes, aiming for 50+.
