At first sight, this painting strikes me as if the lights should be lighter/brighter, to have more contrast. As if the lights were also transparent. But then it hits, and all of it plays into this sense of peace, of being one with nature. Of being It. Creation as an extension of its Creator… like in Art. -Melvin Toledo

Brings to my mind “Novus ōrdō sēclōrum” (New Order of the Ages), the second of the two mottos on the reverse of the Great Seal of the United States, itself a reference to the fourth Eclogue of Virgil, which includes the following memorable passage:
‘Now is come the final era of the Sibyl’s song;
The great order of the ages is born afresh.
now justice returns, honored rules return of Saturn’s reign;
now a new lineage is sent down from high heaven.’
Charles Thomson, who added the motto to the Great Seal, said it was to signify “the beginning of the new American Era” as of the date of the Declaration of Independence.
-Terry Verhoeven

I’m loving this nee series’ concept that you’re working on. Grand, relevant concepts depicted masterfully, as always, but this time there seems to be more to it. You seem to be responding to a universal question these days regarding the place if man in the cosmos in a society with no God, or at least in which God is an untenable concept, due to our intellectual arrogance (my personal interpretation). This series strikes me as fitting cleverly and meaningfully into the contemporary context in the manner it approaches and expressed themes of man and universe, man and cosmos, and man’s place in such a description of existence (the universe, as described today, is infinite and predominated by a void that is indifferent to the trials and dramas of man – i.e. godless). In such a vision of the cosmos, it is indeed man himself who is challenged to become the Great Mover, the Grand Controller, and i see these paintings as addressing and depicting that existential predicament. -Joao Castilhos
