"Why Time?" is the latest from TRUNKS ART!

Boise, Idaho - May 4, 2020 - "Why Time? (#8/12) - So you're a 20-something year old college grad sitting in a cubicle at your first job daydreaming about what? The opposite sex? Outdoor adventure?  Weekend shenanigans?  Well, if you're Albert Einstein, you'd be watching the clock and thinking how slow it's going - but not in the same way slackers like you and me would.  Instead, he was quietly redefining the prevailing, classic, centuries old Newtonian belief of what time is!  But why would a young Einstein EVEN be thinking about the abstraction of time and NOT the upcoming kegger at his buddy, Frederick's place?  Just as he settled into his clerk position in the patent office in Bern, Switzerland, the world was experiencing, for the first time, mass transit; and along with it, major problems with train schedules.  Thanks to the steam engine, trains were making it possible for people to travel all over Europe and North America - but there was a problem - every town had its own time!  So there's young Einstein, pouring over patent submissions - each one depicting clock synchronization ideas - and thinking to himself, "I just invented the irrefutable concept of space-time but will the girls dig it at Fredericks'?"

Notes and Close-ups of the composition, "GRAVITY" by TRUNKS ART! Am I nuts? Yes? No? Maybe?












Boise, Idaho - April 6, 2020 - I've long ago stopped trying to make sense of the creative process.  To me, it's like getting shoved into a raft that's careening along a raging river - without oars.  Just go with the flow!  Oh, and a whole lot of studying up on the subject of your art composition.  So...here are my notes and some close-ups of my last art piece, "Gravity."  As always, thanks for your time, attention and appreciation!

TRUNKS ART is being featured at JUMP Boise!







Boise, Idaho - April 5, 2020 - JUMP Boise, that massive complex that greets you when you drive into downtown from the west, offers various team building events - one of which involves my Boise Art Series.  Participants create the "puzzle pieces" and then assemble them to see the final product - a modified version of one of my Boise themed art compositions.  This particular project was for Colliers International.  For those who can't stand team building stuff (like moi) - this activity is actually pretty fun.

TRUNKS ART presents a new composition called, "Gravity." It's a part of the Physics Series!


Boise, Idaho - April 3, 2020 - "Gravity" (#7/12) - At some point in our history, when we just couldn't keep ignoring the mounting evidence, we stopped believing the earth was flat.  Fast forward to 2020 (with a 3M N95 face mask and rubber gloves of course) and you'll find out that gravity - yup, that ol' reliable stalwart that 'only' serves as the foundational bedrock on which 'up and down' is based upon - is not what we believed it to be.  What the...?! Where's up? Do pigs fly now?  Are we hurtling towards the sun?!  Turns out gravity is only a 'sensation' resulting from the bending of space time by objects with mass and NOT a force based on attraction.  Hmm.  Could be the reason why I'm single - but I digress.  Guess what?  It gets worse.  Now they (they being the top theoretical physicists in the world) think that the secret to gravity is hidden in the quantum mechanics world - in subatomic particles known as gravitrons.  Gosh...remember when we dropped stuff and it just fell down?  *Sigh*...good times.

Notes and details from the last composition from TRUNKS ART!





Boise, Idaho - March 16, 2020 - Business as usual in my little art studio where social distancing has its upside: productive creativeness!  This last composition, "By Design," was more challenging than I originally thought.  Here's a peak into the madness along with a few nifty close-ups.  The finished composition, along with the meaning behind it, can be found in my most previous post.  And as always, thanks for perusing my work.  Stay healthy.  Stay sane.

"By Design" is the latest PHYSICS INSPIRED artwork from TRUNKS ART!

Boise, Idaho - March 12, 2020 - "By Design" (#6/12) - Solar eclipses, tides and the flu season? All predictable.  Solar flares, tsunamis and worldwide pandemics? Not so much - and the universe likes it that way.  One of the ways it ensures this chaotic randomness involves two competing forces within the center of every atom across the periodic table.  Whereas the positively charged, repelling protons in the nucleus produce an (outwardly) electromagnetic force, the (inwardly) nuclear force works to keep them contained.  But not all nuclei are equal as only the iron atom exhibits a balance between these two forces making it the most stable element in the universe.  Okay, here's the payoff: atomic elements lighter than iron tend to combine through fusion (like in our sun) and elements heavier than iron tend to split apart through fission (like in nuclear reactors).  It is these unstable atomic "tendencies" that ensure that our world stays dynamic, ever changing, and unpredictable - and it's all by design.
