THE ART OF C. W. BURWELL III
This group of four canvases, when combined, form a 16' panorama. The sequence begins with 2012, an imaginary convergence of multiple calamities coming upon the earth. Fortunately, we were spared a global catastrophe. Second, is Waves and Particles, a scene depicting the enigma of quantum mechanics, the warping of space/time and Plato's allegory of the cave. Third in the sequence is Clockwork, the mechanization of time measurement with sublime, human icons in flight. The last scene is Spiritus Mundi, or 'spirit of the world'...with obvious troubling events and situations existing on the human level and the arrival of divine intervention.
