Description

The writings of the German philosopher Fredrich Nietzsche are theĀ inspiration for this piece. Burdeny has listened to the tone poem based on the same writingsĀ and composed by Richard Strauss. In it, the world and universe are portrayed as an ever evolving giant entity. The painting evokes the movement of the planets in an ever expanding firmament. The white "Z" over the surface is there to remind the viewer of the title and subject matter.
