As above so below

Ted Barr's avatar Ted Barr

As Above So Below is a Concept from the Jewish esoteric understanding of the Bible - Kabbala. It speaks about unity, what is above us is made from the same ingredients as our building bricks, so there is resemblance between galaxies and embryos, cluster formats and nerve cells, burst of energy rays from stars as the emerging fingers of the embryo in the 9th week of pregnancy. In the 4 paintings I show in DeVos I merge my main 2 series Deep space and Human forming into one unified series I call Cycle of life.
