This is the Covid-19 virus clinging on to fungus in a lab blown up with a microscope I don't know how many times. The virus is all the small pink bits. It's a thing of such rare beauty, and it follows the usual laws of colour harmony in the natural world. The hot pink is on the cool side which compliments the warm green of the fungus. Perfect! In paintings which work warm always compliments cool and vice-versa. When warm greens are placed next to warm reds, the picture will always have problems.
In my opinion only Otto Dix, the German painter in the middle of the 20th century, managed to break these usually iron-clad rules. He broke them break them by sheer force of his originality.
His work stemmed from his wartime experiences in both WWI and WWII. I wonder if I don't associate the Covid-17 with him because of the terrible beauty in his work?
