Ouro Lagosta, (Golden Lobster). The poetry and philosophy of this artwork comes from my Ordered Chaos collection. In this series I attempt to create an anti-entropy of sorts. Entropy is the trend towards chaos or the resistance and loss of potency in an electrical circuit. This means that without implemented and properly executed order, chaos will eventually take over the universe. It is our duty as a species to create the order needed to combat the ever-encroaching onslaught of entropy.
The process of this work is quick, splashy, and explosive. It is not meant to be a literal lobster, but nonetheless it emerges from the crashing wave-like blues and whites despite the surrounding disarray. The effectiveness of this piece is due in part to its contrasting composition. The white space can only carry meaning when compared to the opposing chaotic splashing. Through the confusion of jagged lines and slashing brushstrokes does the order come about.
Only after gaining perspective and taking a step backwards does the entirety of the piece take its true compositional form, otherwise with a shortsighted view or closer look does it seem chaotic. The intention of the piece is to mirror the confusion around us all showing that we all must gain perspective to get a whole view of a situation to further enhance our world.
