This painting is the third I completed in a five part series depicting the Platonic solids. This piece depicts the cube which is associated with earth due to its sturdy form. This geometric structure represents the idea that beyond the messy veil of our world is a perfect and unchanging substrate. I tried to convey a sense of otherworldly calm and mystery in depicting these objects.
