The Creation of Adam
This piece is 25" x 98" acrylic on would. One in my Optimal You collection created for the Optimal You Brain Centers. The series focuses brain strength as a key component to the body's overall health. I chose to recreate Michelangelo's Creation of Adam for a couple of reasons. One being the fact that I absolutely admire him and his mastery of just about everything, the other being that the most common theory behind this specific piece is that the shape surrounding the God figure is actually a brain, as god is giving Adam consciousness. This is a very insightful thing for an individual to portray at the time, more or less subtly driving the main meaning away from religion.
As of today, this is my most prized art piece. It is currently on display at the Optimal You Brain Center in Ponte Vedra Beach, FL.
