Jack Armstrong’s “Cosmic X #1” is one of the artist’s most important paintings. This acclaimed and colorful, acrylic on canvas painting measures 24″W x 36″H.
Jack responded when asked about creating this incredible painting, “The most cosmic thing in my life was the period in 1999 that I spent creating the first Cosmic ‘X’ painting and it almost painted itself. I watched it appear, almost as an observer and its color and composition still seem to me – otherworldly and unique, in its bold symbolism of the universal magic that co-exists in us all.”
Cosmic X requires the artist to become the art they create by feeling no separation between the art itself. This requires a unique state of mind to be reached, connecting to a universal presence, which Armstrong believes exists in each being. It is this connection that “creates the art, not the artist.”
Each acrylic on canvas painting is multi-layered but also includes his personal touch. Armstrong’s hair, fingerprints and DNA are present in his paintings.
