Digital abstract painting – Dark energy
Digital abstract painting - Dark energy Dimensions: 6300 x 5400 px Painted: 2017
The thing that makes the cosmos expand is dark energy. It is an unknown form of energy which is believed to be making the universe expand ever outwards – the best current measurements indicate that dark energy contributes 68.3% of the total energy in the present-day observable universe.
With that in mind Bert Ernie has set out to create an abstract painting of this unseen part of the universe, and has created a grid-like vertical waveform of lines which host circles of different colours. Where those lines and circles interact they create new colours. The result is a beautiful piece of abstract art.
