Pavel Peppershtein’s series ‘Robert Fludd’s Black Square’, consists of five engravings related to the life and thinking of Robert Fludd’s who in the XVI century published a treatise about the Primordial Darkness that reigned before God created the Universe. An English scholar educated in medicine and chemistry, Fludd was also an experienced alchemist who cultivated a strong interest in the sciences of the occult. The image of the black square had a mystical relevance in his studies and was used to represent the Dark Chaos preceding the creation of all things, animals and humans by the intervention of the Divine Light.
