Irreparable Consequences of the Irrational
I believe that past-present-future are all interconnected and I want to capture this connection as a single moment.
This intriguing black and white painting will be the perfect focal point to your contemporary interior design.

Marlene Llanes’ "Irreparable Consequences of the Irrational" is a conceptually rich painting rendered in restrained tones and a markedly surrealist style. Llanes describes the painting as a representation of her view of time. She holds that the past, present, and future are all interconnected and occurring simultaneously. In western society, we usually view time as a tree; a linear progression that grows in one direction. Llanes, however, asks us to consider an alternative view (and for my money, the correct one). The past is not a building block for the present and future, the past is inseparable from the present and future. Instead of imaging time as a linear progression, we should imagine time as a room, where past, present, and future constantly commingle. Time is weblike and interwoven like the floor in "Irreparable Consequences of the Irrational", and a forum where past, present, and future combine and reveal their oneness.
