First Encounter

Erste Begegnung: Gemälde mit Wasserfarben von Dr. Wurst

This work is inspired by Star Trek Discovery. Lt. Michael Burnham, chief officer of Starship Discovery, meets the “Red Angel”. Time-traveling from the future, the Red Angel causes and influences particular events. As we shall see later, it’s actually Michael meeting her future self.

The scene is capturing the viewer with expressive and bright colors. Lots of red, orange and yellow paired with whirling brush strokes are irritating the viewer’s eyes. It’s the same irritation that Michael is facing with the space-time distortion. How would we feel in this situation?
