Daeu Angert. Formless. 2020. Diary Collection. Oil on canvas. 36 x 36 inches (91.44cm x 91.44cm)
The inspiration for this painting came from a recent conversation with a friend about the writings of Wallace D. Wattles. He wrote: “The stuff from which all things are made is a substance which thinks, and a thought of form in this substance produces the form. As the Formless Stuff thinks of a form, it takes that form; as it thinks of a motion, it makes that motion”. Interestingly, if you look closer, this painting comes to life with figures of people, animals, cartoons — even Batman!!!
