Chemical Chance

Chemical Chance. 2016. Gouache, Watercolour and Cotton on Paper. 75x105cm.

These carbon atoms floating in space represent our own tiny, but significant place in the universe.

These carbon Constellations fable of our own existence and the romance of chemical chance: all of the elements forming in and exploding from the compression of a dying star, elements floating in space to finally reform and create the crude beginnings of life as we know it. Carbon is the marker that identifies us and denotes our origins in the universe.
