About Everything and Nothing

Vertical bars of grey acrylic, dove to light charcoal, move irrevocably across the square canvas. The bars, that appear to breathe rhythmically against the picture plane, are made more contemplative by the profound title of the painting -- apparent nothingness is actually everything. Thoughts on this inherent and known contradiction in the nature of the universe emerge through quiet meditation of this monochrome canvas.
