"This artwork was inspired by the Aztec legend about the creation of the five suns, which gave place to the calendar stone, the fifth sun," says Yamilet. Circular forms rise from a horizon of deep red. Architectural structures and organic shapes balance the left side of the composition. Yellow, orange, black and light contrasts of blue. Reminiscent of modern southwestern abstraction. One of the first in Yamilet's series of spiritual abstractions.
Yamilet Sempe is a French-American artist who works in a boldly graphic abstract style visibly influenced by modernist aesthetics. She describes her color palette as being a reflection of her positive energy. Yamilet loves being in nature, finding inspiration in the sea near her Florida home. The subtropical weather and the brightness of the sun guides her choice to use primarily warm colors. Yamilet is also influenced by painter Hilma af Klint and the architecture of Paris.
