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.

"Entropy" notes and detailed close ups from TRUNKS ART!







Boise, Idaho - March 1, 2020 - I'm just starting to realize that people like to see the 'behind the scenes' stuff.  So, here are my notes and rough sketches from my recent composition, "Entropy."  I included some detailed close ups and the piece in its entirety.  The meaning behind the work can be found in the previous post.  As always, thank you for the support, the interest and encouragement.

New Art Composition from TRUNKS ART: "Entropy."



Boise, Idaho - February 29, 2020 - "Entropy" (#5/12) - The next time you hear someone complain that the world is going to sh*t, make their day by letting them know that's true but to include the whole universe as well - thanks to good old Entropy!

Entropy is a physics term defined as 'the gradual decline into disorder' and that everything in the universe is affected by it - even relationships.

Whereas the elements will turn a discarded banana peel into a slick of black ooze on the sidewalk, things like social media, technology, and societal pressures can turn couples into singles.  But, unlike that yucky banana peel, we can not only stop 'relationship entropy' - we can actually reverse its impact by staying vigilant, investing in one another and (oh yeah) by watching where we step on the sidewalk.

New art composition from TRUNKS ART: "Where is the life?!" The latest in a series centered around PHYSICS!

Boise, Idaho - February 15, 2020 - "Where is the life?" (#4/12) - Contrary to what you might think as rational, the universe is 99.9999999% empty space and that includes me, you, that $6 triple venti soy no foam latte you splurged for and the cell phone you're reading this on. The remaining 0.0000001% is entirely made up of 118 elements like helium, sulfur, and copper that are only differentiated by the number of protons, neutrons, and electrons that comprise their make up.  So weird.  Although MY body contains an inordinate amount of gold, most human bodies are comprised of about 60 of these elements with only oxygen, carbon, hydrogen and nitrogen making up 96% of us! So, if we're mostly empty space and charged, subatomic particles, where does compassion, desire, sacrifice, and love come from?  Where IS the life?
