Cosmic Ecstasy

Alexis Kennedy's avatar Alexis Kennedy

This painting takes heavy influence from Bernini's sculpture, The Ecstasy of Saint Teresa, the surrealism movement, and my own spiritual ideologies revolving around the universe and humanity's place within it. A woman is depicted in a moment of spiritual ecstasy, experiencing a state of utter transcendence. She is enveloped in the smoke erupting from her chest, symbolizing her transcendent understanding of the cosmos.
