“We are star stuff.”
Fascinated by the origin of physical matter and our ancestral connection to the macrocosm, I was lead into an alien world of nebula and galaxies, black holes and dark matter, real time and imaginary time. An alien world that is really not alien at all, but rather the very fibre of our being.
If you could trace the history of the oxygen molecule you just inhaled, you would find it on young Earth.
Before the creation of our planet, it was part of the nebula from which our solar system formed. Before the nebula came to be, it was thrust into the universe by a super-giant star whose death created a violent supernova. And before its journey into the universe, it was created by fusion in the core of that star.
Working with Hubble satellite imagery, I tackle space as landscape – painting small windows into time and space to share my passion for the awesomeness of the universe through art.
