Kieran Forster (aka Algernon Eldritch)

Kubrick and 2001 A Space Odyssey

Scroll down to content

I have done a recent series of paintings based on the final strange sequence at the end of the film “2001 A Space Odyssey”. In the final scenes, the astronaut seems to be passing into another dimension of space as he moves through a multitude of merging colours. Others have linked this with other themes, such as human transition to another level OR the movement of the individual to a former or later incarnation. It’s a multilayered sequence of possible meanings. That’s why it forms the basis of these paintings. Nothing is answered ofcourse. There is no resolution. There is just a sense of the ethereal and mystery. The eldritch??? Ha ha
