Cosmic X Paradigm is “the only piece of mine dedicated to a Hollywood personality.” The painting measures 24″ x 36″. Jack continues, “Cosmic Paradigm X is my final masterpiece. It is #100. The last Cosmic ‘X’ painting I will ever create. It is unique in color texture & universal energy. It is a magical living entity.“
Jack Armstrong’s “Cosmic X Paradigm” is becoming a legend for its cosmic energy and because it is his final Masterpiece. It was created to replace his original ‘Cosmic ‘X’ Le Mans’ painting that was stolen in Dallas. Steve McQueen’s 1971 film Le Mans inspired it. “Cosmic ‘X’ Paradigm” is an incredibly important original and the final painting of Jack Armstrong, who met McQueen personally in Hollywood by chance in 1977. McQueen spoke to him about NYC, Motorcycles, acting, & Warhol, encouraging Armstrong to pursue his art dreams & keep in contact. McQueen passed away just as Armstrong’s career with Warhol & Basquiat began. R.I.P. Steve McQueen.
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.
