this moment in time by zeruch this moment in time by zeruch
The full title comes from a Kate Bush lyric for her track from the Hounds of Love album, Jig of Life:

"This moment in time, it doesn't belong to you."

Today I turn 35, and I decided today was as good as any day to start coming out of my semi-exile since my departure from more venerable duties. Yes, you are allowed to chuckle at that statement, especially if you are on AR.

I have a lot of unfinished works which are starting to be finished, and this one is no exception. Done from components both new and old, the working title for this was Glenn Branca Mandelbrot and is a mix of fractal layers, Inkscape-based .svg vectors, and several layers of acrylics and screenprinting ink on bristol sheets.

I love the way this takes my eyes around within, and the slight details that interrupt the journey briefly are terrific :)

This is a really great work. I like your abstracts because even though they are indeed 'abstract', they have a lot of structure that is pleasing to the human eye.

Also, Kate Bush is a good inspiration, much like the quality of this..

I really enjoy the abundance of interesting textures and attention-grabbing colours.

In all its simplicity I find a strange sense of eternal motion that is quite fascinating :)
