Stardust Gazing Back

Another piece for the "Introductions" show at Abend Gallery opening this Friday, July 10th. This piece is also inspired by the poetic fact that many of the atoms that make up our bodies and the world around us have not always existed. They were fused in the cores of old stars that have since exploded and enriched the the material that formed new stars and planets including Earth and everything on it. We are made of starstuff, as Carl Sagan so eloquently expressed in his Cosmos series and Neil deGrasse Tyson in this video.
