NOVA

The ‘Nova’ series of drawings offer the viewer a glimpse into the final moments of a supergiant star’s life cycle. Some offer viewpoints of the supergiant alive and continuing the nuclear fusion process powering the star whilst others offer the viewpoint of and the moments just after the supernova event. Following on a similar approach to the earlier ‘Cosmos’ drawings, the ‘Nova’ series incorporate drawing materials which on an atomic level, first originated from these supergiant stars as well as increasing the scale the drawing. The contrasted black and whites attempt to capture and visualise the vast amounts of energy generated by these events and encapsulate them within each drawing.
