Stellar #11

Bill Santelli's avatar Bill Santelli

"Stellar #11" is an acrylic on canvas painting from a new series I've been working on all this year. The idea came from an article I read about "a possible non-physical realm of existence to which various phenomena, (psychic and other) are ascribed." I created a fluid-looking quality to invoke a feeling that you're "catching a glimpse" of phenomena (spiritual, deep space, water, weather patterns). Each horizontal panel functions as a "scene", yet the painting viewed as a whole, has unity, color, depth and the sense of an inner light source. "Stellar #11" is a quiet, visually interesting painting - and my ultimate intention is to "draw the viewer in", to experience a moment of quiet reflection in the midst of our fast-paced world.
