in the biodome

This is a painting by Saya Woolfalk, an artist I’ve just encountered. I’m still trying to get a grip on where she’s coming from.

Her paintings represent an imaginary world called no place, which is the meaning of the word utopia. We are in the biodome so there’s a lot of biological forms(including human ones, of course.)

There’s also a body of water which is where all life comes from, and yellow red and blue flame representing fire.  So the four elements earth, wind fire and water are all here.  She has used theoretical

ideas to produce a striking image. I like her use of color contrast, the painting pulsates with life.
