Butterfly Nebula

The bright clusters and nebulae of planet Earth’s night sky are often named for flowers or insects. Though its wingspan covers over 3 light-years, NGC 6302 is no exception. With an estimated surface temperature of about 250,000 degrees C, the dying central star of this particular planetary nebula has become exceptionally hot, shining brightly in ultraviolet light but hidden from direct view by a dense torus of dust.

This sharp and colorful close-up of the dying star’s nebula was recorded in 2009 by the Hubble Space Telescope’s Wide Field Camera 3, installed during the final shuttle servicing mission. Cutting across a bright cavity of ionized gas, the dust torus surrounding the central star is near the center of this view, almost edge-on to the line-of-sight. Molecular hydrogen has been detected in the hot star’s dusty cosmic shroud. NGC 6302 lies about 4,000 light-years away in the arachnologically correct constellation of the Scorpion (Scorpius).

Here | Together Artwork

…The title of both my solo and duet Paintings .

The Artwork ties into my belief that everything in this world is connected.  The movements of our lives together here on Earth are not the same movements but are happening at the same times.  We are here together and because of that we are affecting the whole picture.  Our physical and behavioral movements are affecting everything around us.

The first three years of my practice have been dedicated to creating duet forms that together hope to display our undeniable ability to reflect one another.  Recently i’ve begun to create a series of paintings that, abstractly, expresses the movements of a whole.  In addition to my interest in planetary connectivity, I also hold a great interest in the mystery of our own Galaxy, Galaxies beyond ours and Galaxies yet to be discovered.  We are not alone in this Universe and we are certainly not alone on this Earth.
