Celestial Bodies

The beloved astronomer Carl Sagan once said “we are made of star stuff.” And it’s true, about 97 percent of our bodies are made up of the same atoms that form our galaxy – the carbon, nitrogen and oxygen that have been a part of our universe for billions of years. That makes each and every one of us a celestial body in our own right. This served as my starting point in exploring how we, as humans, in our purest form, fit into the universe. I created a piece for Light Grey Art Lab’s “Tasteful Nudes” gallery show based on this idea, full artwork can be seen below.
