Galactic Series

Images in my galactic series(found under my abstractwork) explore space. The unknown and unexplored realms of the physical world are imagined as one might experience them. This series falls into the genre of Space Art, also known as Astronomical Art,which is modern artistic expression that strives to show the wonders of the Universe.

“Like other genres, Space Art has many facets and encompasses realism, impressionism, hardware art, sculpture, abstract imagery, even zoological art. Though artists have been making art with astronomical elements for a long time, the genre of Space Art itself is still in its infancy, having begun only when humanity gained the ability to look off our world and artistically depicted what we see out there. Whatever the stylistic path, the artist is generally attempting to communicate ideas somehow related to space, often including an appreciation of the infinite variety and vastness which surrounds us.”~ Excerpt from Wikipedia found here.

Like many artists, I am expressing ideas surrounding “an appreciation of the infinite variety and vastness which surrounds us.” Additionally, I am drawn to the mysteryof it all ~ a truth that one can know only by revelation and cannot fully understand. Swirling lines and patterns represent energy~ the dynamic quality of positive spiritual force ~ the fundamental being of nature that is transferred between parts of the system. Circles represent form ~ a mode of existence, action, or manifestation of a substance.

Images from this series are in the collections of NASA, Deschutes Brewery, and numerous private collections.
