The Order of Caos II by Joel Filipe

The Order of Caos II, 2016

Joel Filipe

It’s hard to tell whether this composition is showing us a macro or micro view of the world. Is this a planetary view from space? Or a glimpse into the life we’d only be able to see under a microscope? The pink sunburst in the middle looks like an iris, with the pupil dark magenta behind, rimmed in deep indigo, like a crater’s edge. Watery blue formations at the top of the image recall water or ice. The artist doesn’t clue us in to its meaning, leaving us to lose ourselves in its rich colors and possible interpretations.
