Humanity has always looked to the universe with a sense of curiosity and longing. What was once limited to observation with the naked eye and the imagination has now been expanded exponentially thanks to technology. When I look up at the night sky or at images like those from the Hubble Space Telescope, I feel an overwhelming sense of curiosity, elation, fear, and peace. I cannot help but think that the first people to walk the earth felt the same emotional pull when glancing upward. My work explores the ways in which humanity has strived to grasp and connect to the cosmos. References to constellation mythology, astronomical paintings, spiritual moments, and everyday encounters with the unknown universe occur throughout my work. I created this series as a way of narrating the methods through which we relate to the vastness of space, and reconcile with our scale in comparison.
