Wolfgang Paalen, in his piece titled Les Cosmogones, covers the composition of his painting with several overlapping line strokes and gestural marks, which work in cohesion to create an overwhelming sense of motion. This piece is inspired by the strong theme of movement within Paalen’s work, and strives to address the artist’s interest in line, repetition and layering in another light.
