'Messier 4' : 2024

About : Astronomy Series

These prints are based around in imaginary journey to visit the stars and the spaces inbetween. On these voyages, we see that what were initially fuzzy generalities resolve into complex patterns and structures. nebulae and stars merge together in dazzling constellations.

As we have seen with visits to planets and moons in the Solar System, on closer inspection these objects exhibit a baffling srray of unexpected phenomena. Visiting the stars will be an almost impossible event, so these images propose the use of signal-to-noise extraction to circumvent this impediment. Our 'Journey to the Stars' happens within the digital architectural matrices of our computer. The computer is not just a telescope but a means of traveling the unimaginable void to visit them in actuality. Of course any such adventure will require a means of navigation...

Technically the images are processed using 'signal to noise' extraction frequently found in astronomical image manipulation. This gives them the fragmented appearance you see as the computer is making assumptions based on inadequate resolution.

All artworks for sale.

As they are in vector format, they can expanded to any size without degrading the image. They can also be printed in high resolution on acrylic faced di-bond and are usually printed borderless. If you would like to see the prices and options visit WhiteWall to see what is available. Please get in touch with me once you have an idea or would like any assistance.       

The price is my artist's fee of £250 per print plus the cost of fabrication and any postage.
As an example (2020 prices) a standard acrylic faced dibond print that is 120 x 80 cms will cost as follows:
£260 + Postage about £15 + artist fee £250 = £525.

All prints are in editions of 30 (in whatever format) and signed (or with an embedded watermark) by the artist with a certificate of provenance. Each edition is a separate image file with the edition number embedded.
