"… but in the right proportions, our reality is the void, especially when you consider that planet Earth is less than a grain of wheat in the Milky Way galaxy and the Milky Way is less than an Atom in the known cosmos."

THE ANTENNAE GALAXIES
THE ANTENNAE GALAXIES

TITLE: THE ANTENNAE GALAXIES The Antenna galaxies are located 50 million light years away in the constellation Corvus, a star forming area in the universe where new celestial elements are born. I depicted the galaxies in blue as it is the color for completion and regeneration. We are surrounded by blue but there is no blue outside our Earth’s atmosphere.

CANNIS MAJOR
CANNIS MAJOR

TITLE: DS CANNIS MAJOR Cannis major is the celestial resemblance of the inner human turmoil caused by emotions. The piece was created during the last months of my mother’s life and was completed after her death. With all the agony and sorrow I went through there was the deep notion that her death, as my birth, is but part of the everlasting cycle of life.

WHITE DWARF
WHITE DWARF

TITLE: DS WHITE DWARF Inspired by one of the most popular Hubble telescope images known as the Cosmic Eye, White Dwarf is the end of a star that consumes its inner matter and ultimately collapses into itself creating an ultra-dense neutron star. The Neutron star is called White Dwarf and is depicted in the center of the blue matter in the middle of this image.

ANDROMEDA GALAXY
ANDROMEDA GALAXY

TITLE: ANDROMEDA GALAXY The closest galaxy to the Milky Way, 2.5 million light years away. It contains about 900 million stars, more than 4 times the stars of the Milky Way galaxy. In 4-5 billion years the Andromeda and Milky Way galaxies will collide and I hope to survive and paint this collision.

STEPHAN'S QUINTET
STEPHAN'S QUINTET

TITLE: STEPHAN'S QUINTET About 300 million light years away, in the constellation Pegasus, five galaxies are about to collide in the most energetic celestial event. The Chandra observatory image of Stephan 's Quintet was the inspiration for this art work. In my imagination, it became a receiving heart with open hands.
