The Atomic Age
The Atomic Age is 30 inches tall and 48 inches wide, made with archival acrylic paint on gallery-wrapped canvas.
Technically The Atomic Age is considered the era after the first detonation of a nuclear weapon in 1945. These would be very uncertain times for Americans, as they faced daily fears of war.
History seems to repeat itself, doesn’t it? Has The “Atomic Age”’truly ever ended? Or is this still the age of the nuclear bomb and uncertain times?
This painting is inspired by the art created by artists in all mediums during wartime that expressed emotions in their work in a time of uncertainty, and revolutionized the way we would experience abstraction for the rest of time. It’s a nod to the greats like Mark Rothko, Jackson Pollock and Jasper Johns- artists that used color and form to pioneer the art world forever.
