acrylic/mixed media on canvas
abstract piece depicting the solar eclipse. Painted using Black 3.0. Black 3.0 is the blackest and mattest acrylic paint on the planet which absorbs up to 99% of visible light. It is like looking into a black hole. The creators of the paint, (Stuart Semple at Culture Hustle), created a new acrylic resin that holds more pigment than other acrylics which means 3.0 is capable of trapping much more light. They developed a pigment (Black Magick) that is totally matte (normally black pigments are slightly shiny). They have added a variety of brand new transparent mattifiers to flatten out stray light The paint is sensitive to touch and needs to be handled with extreme care. This painting also contains 24 carat gold leaf.
Syzygy definition: the nearly straight-line configuration of three celestial bodies (such as the sun, moon, and earth during a solar or lunar eclipse) in a gravitational system.
