Ocean in Glass Sphere

This work that I made is inspired by Hieronymus Bosch. I visited the Hieronymus Bosch exhibition in Den Bosch a few years ago and I was struck by the sheer beauty of it all. One of his works called ‘The Garden of Earthly Delight‘ is a triptych oil painting. Which means that it consists of 3 panels which can be closed. When the panels are closed, there arises a new painting (see image). The exterior panels show the world during creation. I wanted to recreate that feeling of a miniature world within a dome or sphere. I will certainly make a few more.
