The End of the World

( Again )

Phoenix

2019 - Present

Since 2013 six years past without making any art.

In the Fall of 2019 Loid was forced by his boss to take an Oil Painting class, she was in the process of creating, as part of his job.

Inspired by his boss's passion for creating art he began manifesting visions into art again using various mediums. Below are some of the results that took place around the time that COVID-19 ended one world and gave birth to another world.

When the 2020 Coronavirus lock downs and quarantine began Loid purchased the iPad Pro and Apple Pencil.

After a month of frustration at being unable to draw or paint anything that he liked, he found the app's radial summitry guide. A tool that is present in every painting and drawing app that has ever existed. That is when he stopped TRYING to make art and instead he began to slowly and deliberately PULL art into this world from some other dimension where it seemed to have already existed. He had done this 20 years earlier, while living in Rome, Italy, with a painting program where he created about 10 paintings that his oldest friend told him were Mandalas. The word Symmetrical Painting seemed to describe this new form of art better than mandalas which are more circular and even more repetitive. The paintings below are some of Loid's favorites out of over one thousand that he created throughout the unforgettable year that was 2020.

Loid had not used any kind of paint since 2012 when he painted his solar visions that eventually caused psychosis.

He had only ever experimented with Acrylic and Glow Paint. The idea of oil painting was intimidating but because it became part of his job he tried his best. He was sure he had learned everything that was contained in his boss's online oil painting course which was in the process of being created. His boss had a passion for painting with oils that she wanted to share with the world. If Loid had more encouragement from his boss and a little more self esteem who knows what kind of art could have been produced. He only managed to create 4 oil paintings which are below in order starting with his final painting down to the first.

Art refers to the theory and physical expression of creativity found in human cultures and societies.

From prehistoric cave paintings to modern-day films, art serves as a vessel for storytelling and conveying humankind's relationship with the environment.
