My creation and interpretation of the Whirlpool Galaxy (NGC 5194) is a representation of one of my biggest inspirations in my creative studies- the night sky and far beyond- into the realm of our mighty universe. Maybe it’s the idea of infinite possibilities that overwhelms me or perhaps it’s the beautiful blend of colours and patterns that accompany these galactic forms. This piece is of significant importance to me because it holds the essence of a primary characteristic of mine: curiosity. With experimental layering of colour, the aesthetical display of paint enables me to visualise colossal clusters in greater depth, as well as expanding my horizons in artistic ability. With accompanied research of astronomy, my inner appetite to explore the surroundings beyond our own world is continually being fulfilled.
