Heart of the Cosmos


IMG_1067IMG_1080IMG_1079I’ve had a devil of a job photographing this one! It has such energy and presence ‘in the flesh’ which has proved difficult to fully capture in a photo. Also inspired by the Hubble Telescope images of the Milky Way, Heart of the Cosmos is an original 36 x 36 inch square artwork on acid free box canvas, painted in acrylic with a variety of crystals and clay hearts also painted with acrylic and encrusted with shimmering Glamour Dust. The hearts’ ‘tails’ are created with foil.

Our Milky Way is an immense spiral galaxy, yet it is a mere speck in the wider cosmos. Who knows where the actual heart of the cosmos lies, but without it’s ever-expanding beat, we would not exist. The nitrogen in our DNA, the calcium in our teeth, the iron in our blood… it all originated in the stars.

At the heart of any community is the constellation of its people, its own stars. At the heart of community is emotional connection.

“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel,” said Maya Angelou.

Heart of the Cosmos II asks the question: how is the heart in your community (whether that is where you live, your own home and family, your workplace or the planet as a whole)? Expanding with joy, ticking along or needing a bit more tlc? Our lovely earth definitely needs some tlc don’t you think?
