THIS LIFE HAS BEEN MY BIGGEST DOWNFALL
3d painting of the Earth and Aurora Borealis viewed from space. This piece symbolizes the formation of the sun and solar system from a more massive previous generation star. The larger stars of the young universe exploded in supernovae creating new heavier elements. This giant cloud of gas and newly formed atomic nuclei would then go on to eventually collapse into the star we call the sun and the planets of this solar system. The mandala in the center is actually what a cross section of dna looks like. Around the ring inside the sun I used Allyson Grey's secret language. Her language has no translation so I used it to represent the things we have yet to learn about the universe.
