RED MICROBIA by RSConnett RED MICROBIA by RSConnett
Painted in Los Angeles, October, 2006. Acrylic on canvas. 18" x 18"

The thoughts that I had while painting this were of the tiny worlds that live beyond our sight. The tiny microscopic world were creatures exist so alien to us that they seem to be fictional. The worlds of the 'MICROBIA'.

My mind often drifts off and I wonder about tiny worlds that theoretically may exist deep in the sub-atomic materials that make up the worlds of the ameba. Might there not exists creatures so small that we have not yet discovered them? And if that's possible, could there even be intelligence of some sort?

I could speak more to these ideas, but I'll let the painting speak for me.

…………….

2/20/2008: added the availability of a print here at DA

I also offer my own canvas Giclee's stretched & mounted & hand painted on my site, RSConnett.com: [link]

This piece, for me, is very reminiscent of Gary Baseman, who I admire a lot. Although, sometimes Baseman crowds his paintings with so many characters and so many things and it feels disjointed. I feel like although you've added so much to this piece...so much to look at...it doesn't seem overloaded. It all fits so nicely. Well thought out and well executed!

I share those same ponderings ... and how do we know our stars and galaxies don't act as atoms for a much larger universe?

... and might creatures exist which are so big that we are microbias for them...?

this makes me think of an old print i saw once of what people were speculating lived in the water of the Thames river in England...i wish i could remember the exact caption but i remember it was something like "creatures and cockatrices and chimaeras dire." it made me laugh.
