Black Is the Gravity
that Tethers the
Luminous World
2021
Die Chromatika is a new psychological theory of colour for the 21st Century, created by the artist in response to Goethe's 'Theory of Colours' and Rudolf Steiner's writings on colour.

Of black the artist wrote: I equate black with the intense gravity of a singularity or 'black hole'. I see it as a profound point of truth in the uncertain immensity of the universe. 

Without black / gravity / darkness, there would be nothing to anchor our light-filled, coloured world. What would prevent the visible world from careening off into oblivion?
