This abstract painting hides the idea of calmness taking over chaos. The perfect blue consumes the chaos of life, turning it into peaceful emptiness. From the other point of view, the blue wave could be creating chaos. In any case, this is the relationship of calmness and chaos. There is no one without the other; as without chaos we cannot understand the true calmness. On one hand this is a very textured painting, which adds a special feel to the chaos part. On the other, the wave of sky is smooth and represents calmness.
