The Beginning

1993, Acrylic on canvas 200x220cm, private collection, Belgium


One day the visitor in my studio a nuclear physicist exclaimed: “Wow! Yours compositions are
an illustration to the second law of thermodynamics”.
And he introduced me to the concept of entropy which can be interpreted as the amount of
disorder the system contains. This, he said, provides a way of connecting the microscopic world
where Newtonian and quantum mechanics rule, with macroscopic laws of thermodynamics.
In the isolated systems (the surface of the canvas in my case) entropy continues to grow until
it reaches its maximum value at what it called thermodynamic equilibrium. Interestingly that
this explains the fact that my compositions cannot be considered fnished until they reach the
equilibrium state or may be I can call it Dynamic Balance in the Dynamic labyrinth?
