"Ether," "Sunflowers in Moonlight," "In These Metal Days," "Hemera," "Foam," "Form," and "Format" depict the primeval forces of the ancient Greek religion. I used "The Homeric Hymns" and Hesiod's "Theogony" as my sources. (Please see my commentary about "Sunflowers in Moonlight" for more information about these primeval forces).

In my entire cycle about the primordial forces that form everything, I want color, mark-making, and abstract swirls and movements of line to be intensely psychedelic, but in "Ether," I highlight these visual ideas the most. "Ether" is about the awe-inspiring beauty of the ever-expanding cosmos, a hopeful metaphor for the unshackling of our three-pound-universe and the expansion of organized consciousness.

Darkness and Night tenderly hold hands while up above the stars compose their lucid song.
