String Theory & My Art: Installation 2023

The painting series “String Theory” has 7 paintings, 6 are on canvas and measure 16 x 20; these are displayed above, along with a work on paper in the center, it  is 18 x26, framed at 24 x 32. I exhibited these at the UMVA Gallery at the Portland Media Center, Portland, Maine May 2023.

String theory math, and many of the principles expressed in the “theory” is not something I’m suggesting that I understand. Read the answers on what is  “String Theory” by a leading theorist proponent, Professor Micho Kaku, to questions asked, in an article in the The Guardian. Yet, its importance in physics is something we may all come to understand, since some physicists offer it as a contender for an answer to the solution of the Universe as expressed in the very famous film  “The Theory of Everything.”

The reality is, that in creating my painting series “String Theory 2022,” I allowed my painting to mostly just emote, attempting to free myself of any intellectual control of my painting process. My work is organic in production and I think sustaining the broad  principal  in “String Theory.” I say this acknowledging that I have no way to support this claim, and can only claim an appropriation of the general idea, as expressed in the broad principal on “Spring Theory.”

String theory is a broad and varied subject that attempts to address a number of deep questions of fundamental physics. String theory has contributed a number of advances to mathematical physics, which have been applied to a variety of problems in black hole physics, early universe cosmologynuclear physics, and condensed matter physics, and it has stimulated a number of major developments in pure mathematics. Because string theory potentially provides a oice of its detail.unified description of gravity and particle physics, it is a candidate for a theory of everything, a self-contained mathematical model that describes all fundamental forces and forms of matter. Despite much work on these problems, it is not known to what extent string theory describes the real world. Source: Wikipedia
