This is not a real piece of sky.
This is an abstract painting of a piece of sky.
The piece of sky is surrounded by a thin band of black paint.
This painting is made with acrylics on canvas.
This painting is generated as part of the archive of sky project.
The archive of sky contains computer-generated hex codes, used to replicated the color of the sky in digital photography. For the duration of the project photographs are taken daily, and their codes are shared online @archiveofsky. Paintings are generated as a response to synthesized versions of the sky.
The practice of making art from synthesized codes is a reflection on man-made constructs, and the beauty of emptiness.
This painting is small. A series of large paintings are being developed. The large paintings will be exhibited in a dark room where audiences will be invited to project their own light onto the work.
Part of the archive of sky project is a new religion, registered with the State. The religion celebrates two tenets: #1 sit beneath the sky, considering the interdependence of all things. #2 try to be kind.
You are encouraged to overlook the technical deficiencies of this painting. You are encouraged to celebrate the numinous quality of art that aspires toward the kind of beauty we feel in emptiness. You may also consider hanging this painting in a dark room.
