“Since the first astronomy records 4000 years ago in China, until today with modern mathematics, we are observing the universe attempting to decipher the cosmic “order” that rules us, convinced of the existence of a deterministic universe where certain laws or gods make things happen in a predictable and predetermined way. While the laws of physics work in our daily life, the more we learn about the universe, the more obvious it is that there is little we know about the fundamental pillars of our reality and that there will always be a limit to our knowledge. This leaves us in a universe governed by randomness and entropy, where mathematics is only a limited set of tools to help us understand an unlimited universe.”
“La Madre Secular II its a lay representation of the Madonna, where the sacred remains outside the religious context, and stands as something possible without breaking the laws of nature.
Through the iconic composition, with symbols linked to nature and science, this Madonna replaces the apple from the biblical tale for Newton’s apple, as an allegory to the era of knowledge and skepticism.
