Still It Moves

06 / 02 / 2016

Large abstract painting in acrylic on canvas.

Eppur si move (Still It Moves) is a phrase attributed to the Italian mathematician, physicist and philosopher Galileo Galilei (1564–1642) in 1633 after being forced to recant his claims that the Earth moves around the Sun rather than the converse during the Galileo affair.

This is one of my action paintings. ‘Action painting, also called “gestural abstraction”, is a style of painting in which paint is spontaneously dribbled, splashed or smeared onto the canvas, rather than being carefully applied.The resulting work often emphasizes the physical act of painting itself as an essential aspect of the finished work or concern of its artist.’
