Description This is my inspiration for the 'Cosmic Dance.' One day a picture of the Stonehenge landscape caught my attention. Then my consciousness was absorbed into Stonehenge. The next moment my consciousness and that landscape overlapped. Many images appeared and disappeared again and again. Some were of an enormous, endless ocean; others showed a landscape with the clear air of high mountains; and others had the image of a big city with many skyscrapers. Those images each had their own personality. Each existed in a closed space. In my consciousness they appeared to be alive, animate existences beyond space and time. They were jumping, bouncing and flying. They seemed to be dancing in my conscious universe. This picture is a representation of that experience, using computer graphics to visualize it in two dimensions.
Yuichi Tanabe, Red Hook, NY Member Since July 2009 Artist Statement I was born in Japan and studied design at Osaka Art University. I love to work in 3-D, like sculpture, as well as painting. I exhibited some of my work in Japan and also in the States after moving here. Although I have done some acrylic painting here, I’ve found the digital medium very exciting and more of my recent work is done on the computer. It’s also allowed me to return to 3-D. Sculpture kind of requires more space and equipment than I’ve had room for in recent years! My work reflects my desire to bring together science and spirituality, in a beautiful way. Hope you enjoy it.
