This is collaboration number four with Travis for his 2011/12 Lib Tech line. My first back to back graphic for him. This time, the theme is an exploration of nature vs science--all aspects of creation, and man's obsession of extending himself beyond human capability.
For me, the creative process in this piece became the embodiment of the theme itself. I worked for over a month on the initial concept I had, that first came to mind and then I arrived at the place where the painting was my jailer. Knowing better than to stay on that path, I took my favorite step and destroyed hundreds of hours of work and started over on a blank canvas. Within 30 minutes, this explosion of color and energy began to unfold.
Painted in Jackson WY in the summer of 2010 at the Asymbol studio.
